America is being held back by the quality and quantity of learning in college. This is a true educational emergency! Many college graduates cannot think critically, write effectively, solve problems, understand complex issues, or meet employers expectations. We are losing our minds--and endangering our social, economic, and scientific leadership. Critics say higher education costs too much and should be more efficient but the real problem is value, not cost--financial solutions alone wont work. In this book, Hersh and Keeling arguethat theonly solution--making learning the highest priority in college--demands fundamental change throughout higher education.
