Last month I had the opportunity to interview the amazing Professor Sara Goldrick-Rab. Between technical issues and the craziness of life I thought I lost our interview, but thankfully it has been found! I initially reached out to Professor Goldrick-Rab to discuss the education portion of the Trump Budget; however, we dug deeper into her research into the challenges facing college students and families beyond tuition affordability. Professor Goldrick-Rab encourages those fighting for issues like free tuition to look at the other factors in Higher Education access and affordability. Check out her book “Paying the Price” if you have time! This is research and policy efforts we should be supporting if we are going to help make college accessible and affordable for all.
For more information on her research and writing check out her website.
