Learning Series: Is Higher Education Working?

  • The Chicago Club

Higher education is core to the American Dream. But even for those who enroll in college, many don't make it to graduation day and others accrue exorbitant debt. Is college the right answer for every student? How do we make higher education work better for low-income youth who are most vulnerable to these challenges? A Better Chicago will explore these critical questions at this special event.
