Student debt has increased significantly over the past twenty years, but what factors have brought this about? Are students to blame for making irresponsible financial decisions, or is the price of education rising disproportionately to average income? How do variables like class and race impact student debt? What impact do these debts have on individuals and the economy? This volume examines the nature of America's student debt crisis and explores possible solutions" --

Lesson Plan : an agenda for change in American higher education / by Bowen, William G.; McPherson, Michael S.,author.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.PART I: Prelude 1 -- PART II: Pressing National Needs -- Achieving Higher Levels of Educational Attainment -- Raising College Completion Rate in the United States -- Reducing Time-to-Degree -- Reducing Disparities in Outcomes by Socioeconomic Status and Race or Ethnicity -- Achieving Affordability -- Strengthening Leadership Capacities -- PART III: An Agenda for Change -- Governmental Funding--Apart from Student Aid -- Payments by Individuals--and Student Aid (Including Loans) -- Increasing Efficiency -- Putting High-Profile College Sports in Proper Perspective -- Rationalizing Staffing: Supporting the Development of a "Teaching Corps" -- Improving Teaching through Technology: Adaptive Learning -- Enabling Stronger Leadership.American higher education faces some serious problems--but they are not the ones most people think. In this brief and accessible book, two leading experts show that many so-called crises--from the idea that typical students are drowning in debt to the belief that tuition increases are being driven by administrative bloat--are exaggerated or simply false. At the same time, many real problems--from the high dropout rate to inefficient faculty staffing--have received far too little attention. In response, William G. Bowen and Michael S. McPherson provide a frank assessment of the biggest challenges confronting higher education and propose a bold agenda for reengineering essential elements of the system to meet them. The result promises to help shape the debate about higher education for years to come. Lesson Plan shows that, for all of its accomplishments, higher education today is falling short when it comes to vital national needs. Too many undergraduates are dropping out or taking too long to graduate; minorities and the poor fare worse than their peers, reinforcing inequality; and college is unaffordable for too many. But these problems could be greatly reduced by making significant changes, including targeting federal and state funding more efficiently; allocating less money for "merit aid" and more to match financial need; creating a respected "teaching corps" that would include nontenure faculty; improving basic courses in fields such as math by combining adaptive learning and face-to-face teaching; strengthening leadership; and encouraging more risk taking. It won't be easy for faculty, administrators, trustees, and legislators to make such sweeping changes, but only by doing so will they make it possible for our colleges and universities to meet the nation's demands tomorrow and into the future.

Girls coming to tech! : a history of American engineering education for women / by Bix, Amy Sue,author.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Rare invaders: the pre-World War II history of women in American engineering -- World War II: emergency engineering employment training -- New wartime and postwar engineering majors: Purdue, RPI, Columbia -- Coeducation via lawsuit: Georgia Tech -- Coeducation for social life: Caltech -- A special case: women at MIT -- Changing the climate."In Girls Coming to Tech!, Amy Bix tells the story of how women gained entrance to the traditionally male field of engineering in American higher education. As Bix explains, a few women breached the gender-reinforced boundaries of engineering education before World War II. During World War II, government, employers, and colleges actively recruited women to train as engineering aides, channeling them directly into defense work. These wartime training programs set the stage for more engineering schools to open their doors to women. Bix offers three detailed case studies of postwar engineering coeducation. Georgia Tech admitted women in 1952 to avoid a court case, over objections by traditionalists. In 1968, Caltech male students argued that nerds needed a civilizing female presence. At MIT, which had admitted women since the 1870s but treated them as a minor afterthought, feminist-era activists pushed the school to welcome more women and take their talent seriously. In the 1950s, women made up less than one percent of students in American engineering programs; in 2010 and 2011, women earned 18.4% of bachelor's degrees, 22.6% of master's degrees, and 21.8% of doctorates in engineering. Bix's account shows why these gains were hard won." -- Publisher's description.

Well organized and written in a conversational tone, each chapter describes a particular social work domain, illustrating specific careers within that field including best features, challenges, required core competencies and skills, and educational and licensing requirements needed to succeed. For each career the book also discusses employment outlook and includes recommended references for more in-depth information. Vivid stories from social workers across the country further help readers to choose a career that is a good fit. Additionally, the book includes updated job-hunting tools and websites, including international opportunities, and ways to offset the high cost of higher education. Questionnaires and self-assessment checklists provide additional fodder to help readers choose a social work career tailored to their unique talents, interests, and passions.
