When, how and will college students get back on campus?
University of California Professor Christopher Newfield wrote
The Great Mistake in 2016 on how we wrecked public
universities and failed the middle class. Now COVID-19 has
knocked schools flat. He calls for refunding and rebuilding
public higher ed at the end of
neoliberalism. Talk about prescient.
We are also joined by Kent Syverud, Chancellor of private
Syracuse University. Both say we need a Marshall Plan - and fast -
to help American higher ed rise again. With pandemic, dramatic
unemployment and a stone cold economy, how do we revive the
American university? Time to get creative!
