Tuttle Twins

Apparently, the highest rated episode in the history of The Tuttle Twins premiered a few weeks ago – the one where my animated alter-ego was allowed to sing a song about the many alternatives to a college diploma, and answer a few questions about the actual value of a four-year degree. I find that rather gratifying. Likewise, this clip on Instagram has been viewed over 7 million times – more than any other clip ever shared from this very popular series. Also gratifying.
As much as I’d like to credit my animated presence for all this video virility, I think it’s more likely the result of several inconvenient but undeniable truths that are finally starting to sink in.
1) A four-year degree is NOT the best path for the most people.
2) Millions of excellent opportunities exist for those who wish to learn a skill that’s in demand.
3) People are different, and pushing “college for all” over the last 40 years has done incalculable damage to millions of people who have been poorly served and wildly overcharged for a degree that guarantees them nothing.
Big thanks to the twins, for animating the truth, and letting me tell it.
