"The Lost Soul of Higher Education" from The Leonard Lopate Show

Historian Ellen Schrecker discusses the current battles over higher education, the challenges to academic freedom, and the rapidly changing structure of American Universities. Her book The Lost Soul of Higher Education: Corporatization, the Assault on Academic Freedom, and the End of the American University looks at the effects of ideological assaults on academic freedom and decades of eroding higher education budgets.
