The Best Education: Worldwide Travel

Nick Kristof’s column yesterday (TimesSelect) in the NYT spoke to me — each and every word. It’s about why every student should earn academic credit for taking a gap year after high school, traveling the world, experiencing cultures with a backpack, and so forth. With the timing of his column, you’d think I paid him!

Friends of Ben agree whole-heartedly with Kristof.

Thanks to my friend Jeff Maurone for alerting me to the column before I had a chance to read the paper.
