Higher Education book review

— Times Books

Higher education in the United States is big business—a $400 billion dollar a year business.  A four-year education at some of the nation’s top-tier universities can cost a student as much as $250,00—a sum that prompts the question: Is it worth it? Sociologist Andrew Hacker and New York Times writer Claudia Dreifus tackle that question in their book Higher  Education? Listen as they tell Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert why they are calling for a complete overhaul of the country’s collegiate system.
