A short podcast by The Center for College Affordability and Productivity explores the pros and cons of attending school past high school graduation.

The Center for College Affordability and Productivity is dedicated to researching the rising costs and stagnant efficiency in higher education, with special emphasis on the United States. CCAP seeks to facilitate a broader dialogue on the issues and problems facing the institutions of higher education with the public, policy makers, and the higher education community.

CCAP, located in Athens, Ohio, defines its mission rather broadly. “Affordability” means not only rising tuition and other costs to the consumer of education services, but more broadly the burden that colleges impose on society. “Productivity” refers not only to the costs and resources needed to educate students and perform research, but also to the measurement and quality of educational outcomes. CCAP is concerned about finding new ways to do things better – to improve affordability and productivity. In particular, the organization is interested in assessing how the use of the forces of the market could make higher education more affordable and qualitatively better.

Listen to the podcast.

This podcast debate is brought to you by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity staff members under the direction of Dr. Richard Vedder, Amanda Denhart, Samuel Kissinger and Maxwell Pristic. Moderated by Maxwell Pristic, with James Roy and Ryan Brune on the affirmative and Rob Hammer and David Holman on the negative side.
