Podcast: Reporters’ Roundtable on Higher Education

Reporters Goldie Blumenstyk of the Chronicle of Higher Education, Open Campus’s Sara Hebel, and Paul Fain of Inside Higher Ed discuss the stories they covered in higher education in 2019 and the topics coming into focus for 2020.

Hebel says, “So obviously the 2020 conversation will include a lot about free college and student debt. And student debt is something that we talk a lot about. And one thing I guess that I’d be interested in looking at over the year is to be a little deeper into what the problems really are on student debt. Who really is being affected by it?”
