Billy Wimsatt Quote: The problem with college

prisons

“The things I needed most there were no classes for. There are no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what’s important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether or not they know Algebra or can analyze literature.” 

William Upski Wimsatt (Author, graffiti writer, activist)
