From a renowned education writer comes a paradigm-shifting examination of the rapidly changing world of college that every parent, student, educator, and investor needs to understand. Over the span of just nine months in 2011 and 2012, the worlda€™s most famous universities and high-powered technology entrepreneurs began a race to revolutionize higher education. College courses that had been kept for centuries from all but an elite few were released to millions of students throughout the worlda€”for free. Exploding college prices and a flagging global economy, combined with the derring-do of a few intrepid innovators, have created a dynamic climate for a total rethinking of an industry that has remained virtually unchanged for a hundred years. In The End of College, Kevin Carey, an education researcher and writer, draws on years of in-depth reporting and cutting-edge research to paint a vivid and surprising portrait of the future of education. Carey explains how two trendsa€”the skyrocketing cost of college and the revolution in information technologya€”are converging in ways that will radically alter the college experience, upend the traditional meritocracy, and emancipate hundreds of millions of people around the world. Insightful, innovative, and accessible, The End of College is a must-read, and an important contribution to the developing conversation about education in this country.students and professors from the university participated inamass book burning: Humboldt UniversitActzu Berlin, a€œShort History, a€ ... aboutthe higher learning inAmericaa€: Robert Maynard Hutchins, The Higher Learningin America, NewHaven, CT: Yale University Press, 1936. a€œMymistake wasthat I thought I was a successful evangelista€: As quoted by Harry S.
