Ivory Tower, 2014

We always joke that by the time Axel and Oscar are college-bound, we'll have to move to Sweden (we are not entirely joking.)

Thank goodness for those EU passports.

I watched the new documentary 'Ivory Tower' on CNN last night. It's about student loan debt, why college in America now costs $60,000, and whether there are any alternatives. It's worth watching, if you're interested. Do kids really need rock climbing walls and multi-million dollar student centers to get a great education? Can new ventures like Udacity and EdX help? Hopefully we'll have figured all this out sometime in the next sixteen years.

I've been on a bit of a documentary kick lately. I also loved Fed Up and Spark: a Burning Man Story. Something about cold weather makes me want to curl up with a film that makes me think about the world in a new way.
