President Obama campaigned on the premise that college should be within the reach of all Americans. He has since said that every American should pursue at least one year of higher education after high school. College applicant pools rise each year along with tuition. K-12 programs, politicians, and public figures continue to promulgate a “college for success” mindset. What is the real impact of this mindset? Should alternative career paths be expanded? Are non-college grads confined to a second-class lifestyle, or is the “college for all” mindset creating aimless graduates with mountains of debt and insufficient skills? In short, is college for everyone?
Join State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) President Paul Lingenfelter, American University Professor of Economics and Urban Institute Fellow Robert Lerman, and University of California Riverside Professor of Sociology Steven Brint for a discussion on these questions and more in Rose Hills Theater on Tuesday, March 9, at 8 pm.
