It seems everyday you read another story about how much college costs, how much debt college graduates are burdened with, and how little a college degree helps when it comes to finding a job.
With one son halfway through his college years and another one coming up fast, this is a topic that fascinates me right now. My new article reviews Don't Go Back to School by Kio Stark, a book that addresses the question of whether you can learn what you need to know without college and still succeed.
Stark knows how to get things done without going through the normal channels. In 2011, Stark launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the book. It attracted 1,588 backers, who paid a total of $38,928 to help Stark get her book out to the public. That's just one of the things that makes Don't Go Back to School an interesting read for homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers alike.
