I'm not sure whether this is bad or not. I don't much see the point of the majority of liberal arts students who, at least in the UK, seem to drift along, drink, philander and don't seem to emerge particularly enlightened after three years. There's no point trying to force people into becoming enlightened citizens, only they can do that, they might as well learn something that will make them economically productive. If they wish to be something more than expert 'learn ignoramuses' then there are lots of public libraries one can go to and books one can purchase. This sort of learning is ultimately a very personal thing.
