"Lost in the Meritocracy- How I traded an education for a ticket to the ruling class " Is having an "aptitude for aptitude" all that we're training for? In retrospect, that's all I was striving for in H.S. and early college- getting the next 'A,' acing the next exam, impressing the next prof. Where does actual education and edification fit in?
