Episode Description

On this week’s Capital Thinking as Kevin O’Neill will be joined by Rosemary Becchi and Kristin Wells for legislative updates on tax reform and immigration overhaul, respectively. Next, we will examine the return on investment for higher education by speaking with two researchers, both of whom recently co-authored articles on the topic. First, Andrew Gillen of Education Sector will discuss the various tools currently available for measuring value and how to improve the existing system. Then, Isabel Sawhill from the Brookings Institution will follow up with her reasons why a college degree may not be right for everyone, and what factors should be considered when deciding what may be right for you. Follow us on Twitter @capitalthinking and tweet your responses.
