In preparation for our spring special event with Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, please join ACERT for a 3-part Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC) where we will read and discuss selections from Goldrick-Rab's book Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream. In her work, Goldrick-Rab argues that one of the most sustained and vigorous public debates today is about the value—and, crucially, the price—of college. Through our reading and discussion of her work, we will analyze her transformational vision for higher education in America, and draw lessons for how we support students at Hunter and address issues such as homelessness and food insecurity in our work as teachers and administrators.
