paying the price by Sarah
The College of Education will host a book launch to celebrate the release of Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream by Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, Professor of Higher Education Policy and Sociology at Temple University.
 
For nearly a decade, Goldrick-Rab tracked 3,000 young adults who entered public colleges and universities in Wisconsin in 2008, with the goal of understanding college affordability and its impact on graduation rates. The results of that unprecedented and exclusive study are revealed in her eye-opening and alarming new book that shows with damning clarity that college students drop out overwhelmingly because they cannot afford the price.
 
Date: Monday, September 26, 2016
 
Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments and books available for purchase. Event begins at 6:00 pm.
 
Location: Temple University Performing Arts Center (TPAC)
