Swing State

Apr 26, 2020

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!
