Since the State of the Union address, there has been a lot of talk if Obama would be able to make America’s College Promise a reality. Here are two great podcast from Inside Higher Education that expand more on the likelihood of proposal.
Below I’ve embedded two podcasts from Inside Higher Ed website. This Week (title of the program, which is slightly confusing I know) releases weekly podcasts focusing on two issues in higher education. About two weeks ago, they had a podcast called “Free Community College For All / Rebooting Academic Governance” (Program 31) with guests from LaGuardia Community College, Gail Mellow, and Assistant Professor of Higher Education from Seton University, Robert Kelchen talking about how Obama’s plan might affect the middle class (and if it would indeed rebuild a struggling middle class) among other things.

I’m also embedding a more recent podcast (just released Friday!) called “The Obama Higher Ed Agenda / Are graduates well-prepared?” (Program 32). So all you have to do is press play! Also be sure to check out the link to the podcasts since they contain more links to related articles, videos and podcasts as well as a little background information on their guest speakers.
