Description - Saving State U by Nancy Folobre

Whilst working as Chairperson in a university department of Economics, celebrated feminist Nancy Folbre saw first-hand how cut backs severely affected the quality of education and services available to students. In an incisive study, she explains how public education fits into the economy at large. As America faces a transition in administration, and a change in policies on public spending, this well-informed call to action provides a much needed perspective on public education.
