Regretting that bachelor’s degree in archaeology? Or still chipping away at $50,000 in student loans from that private university? This week – we talk about why more young people aren’t given greater direction when it comes to choosing post-secondary schooling. Two higher education experts join us to talk through some of the challenges facing programs and how students can make a more informed and cost-effective choice.
- Dr. Deb Geller, higher education expert, former associate dean of students, University of California – Los Angeles.
- Dr. Anthony Carnevale, research professor, director, Center on Education and the Workforce, Georgetown University.
Thank you for this audio.
So many things have changed… Most of it needed to change. So, why not our education system? The tuition is outrageously high and graduating with tens of thousands of dollars in student loans is not exactly very exciting. The value of a higher education is becoming questionable, considering the possibilities in entrepreneurship. Knowledge and learning are now available in so many other ways.
