I think I read a post here in LW presenting two books by authors with different ideologies (one communist and another libertarian) reaching the same conclusion: we should stop financing the education system. One of them must be "The Case Against Education" by Caplan (which I finished recently and I loved). Does anyone know what's the other book, or even the post I am referring to?

I have tried google and the LW search for quite a while without success.

If you heard about these books via LW or ACX, I guess the second one was likely The Cult of Smart by Freddie deBoer. And here's the ACX book review.

I don't think Freddie thinks that "we should stop financing the education system" exactly tho.

Thanks a lot. That's probably the correct book, though I don't think that was the blogpost I read
