Inequality and optimism in higher education

Last month the EDUCAUSE media team asked me two really good questions during a video interview: where is the greatest inequality in higher education, and what keeps my optimism going? I answered in just over 3 minutes.

    I really enjoyed listening to your views and summation of this topic Bryan. Thanks for sharing it. You did a great job and I love your closing comments. I’m sending this along to my 18yr old nephew.

  3. Hi Bryan
    I’m one of the displaced workers from the 2008 financial crisis that responded to President Obama’s 2010 call to retrain in community college. Although 2/3 of California’s Community College students are “adult learners” my four college district in Oakland CA is still unprepared for adult students. Intake, assessment, counseling and libraries are all closed at night (except for a few shifting hours at the start of semesters). I can go on and on about the barriers still in place. While Governor Brown has restored some funding, it is fought for and distributed by identity groups not social class.
