Forgot to include the quote I use for the previous post.

“Coursework should inspire more intellectual probing. It won’t hurt their chemistry grades, and outside books may even raise their scores on the GMAT and LSAT, which have reading comprehension sections. Young Americans have everything to gain from reading, more civic and historical knowledge, familiarity with current events and government actions, a larger vocabulary, better writing skills, eloquence, inexpensive recreation, and contact with great thoughts and expressions of the past. And yet even in the intellectual havens of our [colleges], too many of them shield themselves from the very activity that best draws them out of the high school mindset.”

Then I ask - "Do you agree that college students don't read?" And "Why don't college students read?" You get some really interesting answers!
