46. College Unbound: The Future of Higher Education and What It Means for Students by Jeffrey J. Selingo
Selingo examines the state of higher education today and looks at the way he believes it must change in the face of skyrocketing costs both in the way that schools do business and the loans that students must take out to go to school coupled with changes in technology that are disrupting the traditional ways the people have had access to higher learning. As someone who works in higher education I found it to be a very interesting book with lots of food for thought. I think it would also be a great book to read for students and their parents while they are deciding where to go to college. I don’t necessarily think that change is going to be as rapid as Selingo expects, but I do think he raises some very good questions that colleges and universities are going to have to start addressing. I give it a 7 out of 10.
