Listen or read this excellent interview with Kevin Carey, the director of the Education Policy Program at the New America Foundation. The interview actually explores the uncertainties and driving forces that will perhaps make college more affordable in the long term. He also offers an often hidden definition of college that may well underpin the disruptions that will keep students learning, but may make a tradition college degree less relevant.
The percentage of all students taught by non- tenure-track professors – adjuncts, teaching assistants – has gone up and up and up.
