I bet my student loans cost more than your mortgage – and I'm saying that with a straight face. Before ditching the dorm and buying a home, college students already face a huge financial crisis. In her latest work, DIY U: Edupunks, Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education, ANYA KAMENETZ calls attention to America's dwindling prioritization of collegiate-level education. The Pulitzer nominee maintains that in a time of such social media dominance, we've got to be more collective in the process of education. It takes a village to raise a child, but it shouldn't take a whole nation to pay for school, period. Kamenetz discusses and signs her book at the Jimmy Carter Library.
