NEWS FROM NASFAA

Alexander Skarr

In a book titled "Sustainable, Resilient, Free: The Future of Public Higher Education," author John Warner dives into what he argues is the main driver behind the skyrocketing costs of higher education and proposes a solution for how higher education can survive. Focusing on the push for competition in higher education over the last 40 years, Warner's main contention in SRF is that higher education must be rethought as a public good, rather than a purely private good. "Using logic that wouldn't be out of place in Karl Marx's seminal work, 'Das Kapital,' Warner's 'diagnosis' of the current state of higher education has stuck with me," writes Alexander Skarr, who read the book and shared his opinions of its content with NASFAA. "Warner contends Reagan era policies that promoted competition have led to an unsustainable climate in higher education." What follows are his takeaways, thoughts, and reflections.
