Connections: College At The Breaking Point?

Sep 23, 2016

Recently, we heard from Nazareth College President Daan Braveman, who wanted to stress the point that the cost of college is not rising as quickly as many people seem to think. That's because the sticker price is not the same as the actual price most students pay.

But University of Rochester graduate and author Kevin Connell counters that there is indeed a crisis in higher education. His new book, Breaking Point, is being released, and Connell is back in Rochester for a book talk. First, he joins us on Connections to discuss the problems he sees, along with possible solutions.
