College is creating poverty | Sara Goldrick-Rab | TEDxPhiladelphia

  • People go to college in search of a better life and economic stability. But Sara Goldrick-Rab explains that too often, the new economics of college are creating poverty. Hunger, even homelessness, are holding students back. Higher education finance must be rethought so students aren't punished for pursuing education. Sara Goldrick-Rab is Professor of Higher Education Policy & Sociology at Temple University, and Founder of the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice in Philadelphia, as well as
    the Wisconsin HOPE Lab. She is best known for her innovative research on food and housing insecurity in higher education, having led the largest national studies on the subject, and for her work on making public higher education free. She is the recipient of the William T. Grant Foundation’s Faculty Scholars Award and the American Educational Research Association’s Early Career Award, and in 2016 POLITICO named her one of the top 50 people shaping
    American politics. Her latest book, Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream (University of Chicago, 2016), is an Amazon best-seller and a 2018 winner of the Grawemeyer Award, and has been featured on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx
