Peter Wood, president of the NAS, said, "Making College Right stands out for its keen analysis of the problems as well as its practicality. William Casement was a professor of philosophy before becoming a successful art dealer. Both professions can be seen in his deft prescriptions for reform. He doesn't just criticize. He proposes workable alternatives."
Wood continued, "Casement, for example, offers provisions for how higher education can split big-time sports teams away from amateur athletics. He calls for an end to both racial preferences and legacy admissions. And he urges that the AP Examination system be cut down to size. He also proposes ways to decrease tuition, improve the college ranking system, and renovate the core curriculum."
