Deflating the Higher Ed Bubble -- A Scenario

George Leef

In this Minding the Campus essay, my Pope Center colleague Jane Shaw ruminates on a scenario in which the higher ed bubble substantially deflates. It is tongue-in-cheek, but the prospect for a great shake-up in the business of post-secondary education is very real. If students and their families figure out that getting a college degree is often a huge expense for little tangible benefit and if better alternatives look credible, there could be a sea change in the world of higher education.
