RSVP for Student Debt Jubilee & Why Higher Education Ought to Be Free
Join us for the conference call interview and recording for our newest podcast.
Thursday, December 22 – 5:30 PAC/8:30 EST
On this conference call/podcast, the 84th in our Conversations with the Cabinet series, we will explore how to reverse this terrible phenomenon. Our country is creating an entire generation of indentured servants, while offering unprecedented wealth to predatory and unregulated private lenders such as Sallie Mae (related Mother Jones and Counterpunch articles).
Canceling all student loans is only part of the solution to helping the next generation break free of the chains of debt. All who gain admittance into our universities could attend free of charge. Our Conversation will also feature experts on democratizing higher education. We will hear from longtime free higher education advocate Adolph Reed Jr. (see his two articles Majoring in Debt, and Free Higher Ed!). And we will be joined by Bob Samuels, author of Why All Higher Public Education Should Be Free.
RSVP NOW to join our Conversation.
