How Can Students, Parents And Professors Get The Most Out Of Higher Education?

In his new book, a tenured professor gives a behind-the-scenes look at the American university system: what works, what doesn't, and how to get the most out of higher education.

From the publisher: 

Professors can be underpaid. Marginalized. Over-reviewed. But one fact remains: The success of your education depends on them. Part industry expose and part call for a return to engaged teaching, "Campus Confidential" shows how the noble project of higher education fell so far and how we can redeem it.

A must-read for parents thinking about their kids' futures: This book answers the questions most other college resources don't: Who exactly is teaching my kid? What questions to ask on the campus visit? How to get the most out of your tuition dollars?

Guest: Jacques Berlinerblau, Georgetown University professor and author of "Campus Confidential: How College Works, Or Doesn't, for Professors, Parents, and Students"
