How does higher education serve our democracy? With college tuitions at an all-time high, instruction migrating to online platforms, and the number of good jobs for those without college degrees declining, America is at a crossroads. Columbia professor Andrew Delbanco (College: What it Was, Is, and Should Be), Andrew Hacker (Higher Education? How Colleges Are Wasting Our Money and Failing Our Kids, and What We Can Do About It), and Brooklyn College Dean Kimberley L. Phillips (War! What is it Good For? Black Freedom Struggles & the U.S. Military From World War II to Iraq), discuss the past, present, and future of higher education as a path to adulthood in America. Moderated by Richard Greenwald.
