It is senseless to pay tuition to educate a rebel who has no heart for truth. (the Bible)

This is a paraphrase of a biblical proverb that makes a lot of sense in 21st century life. Costs for higher education have skyrocketed at a pace exceeding normal inflation. Fewer and fewer families can afford college costs without enormous amounts of financial aid. But why pay the expense when so many don’t seem to aspire to discover and propagate truth?

Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it? (Proverbs 17:16).
