My Reading List Is Too Long! | Inside Higher Ed

It’s hard to believe that we are already half-way through January! 

This is what I’m up to this Monday morning. 

1. I’ve been working on finalizing my spring course – Current Issues in Higher Education: Policy and Practice – and I”m really excited about focusing on the following big issues:

  • Concurrent Enrollment/Dual Enrollment/Early College
  • Free Community College movement
  • Basic Needs (In)security 
  • Student loan debt/crisis/forgiveness
  • Student protection/support during mergers/closures

Expect to hear from me and others on these topics over the next few months here at Inside Higher Ed. . 

2. What’s on my to-read list at the beginning of this week, Monday, January 16, 2023?

We’ll see if I actually get through these before new “things to read” show up in my email in-box. Let me know what you are reading this week.

3. I’m also digging into a fantastic stack of books on higher ed and I'll be writing about these books in the coming weeks:

  • Unwelcome Guests: A History of Access to American Higher Education (2022)-Harold S. Wechsler and Steven J. Diner
  • Wealth, Cost, and Price in American Higher Education: A Brief History (2023) –  Bruce A. Kimball with Sarah M. Iler
  • Breaking Ranks: How the Rankings Industry Rules Higher Education and What to do About it.(2022) – Colin Diver
  • It’s Not Free Speech: Race, Democracy, and the Future of Academic Freedom (2022) – Michael Berube and Jennifer Ruth 
  • Unsettling the University: Confronting the Colonial Foundations of US Higher Education (2022) by Sharon Stein

4. I’m editing a piece on SAT Test Optional policies for The Conversation. I hope to be able to share a link to this soon.
