- The Biblioracle: College for All or Defund Education? Two Opposing Views on FixingThe Broken System
Chicago Tribune, 3.21.18
Cathy Davidson, director of The Futures Initiative at the The Graduate Center of The City University of New York, offers a different take in “The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux.” Davidson believes higher education needs to change, but rather than starving it, she advocates for a broad-based “revolution” that attacks the barriers between students and learning, including educational costs, approaches to curriculum, and how we measure and credential students. Davidson’s home institution of CUNY is a leader in fostering social mobility.
