March 8, 2017

Dr. Richard Bishirjian, author of The Coming Death and Future Resurrection of American Higher Education, joins the show to talk about how the higher ed establishment works to cripple innovation and force massive debt on students and families.

Dr. Richard Bishirjian, author of The Coming Death and Future Resurrection of American Higher Education, and founding president and professor of government at Yorktown University from 2000 to 2016, explains how regional accreditation requirements are stifling schools' abilities to innovate and offer students a much more affordable higher education. Bishirjian delves into the number of ways government is crushing higher education, and offers students suggestions for avoiding debt and gaining an education in an era when student loan debt is spiraling out of control.
