The Economic Policy Institute hosted a conversation and luncheon with author and Berkeley professor of public policy David Kirp to discuss The College Dropout Scandal. Emma García, EPI’s education economist, introduced the author, and Pedro da Costa, communications director, moderated the sit-down chat and audience Q&A.
Kirp’s findings are rather stunning: 40% of undergraduates at public universities don’t earn a bachelor’s degree within six years, and 70% of students at two-year community colleges haven’t graduated after three years.
