Diane Auer Jones on Alternatives to College


Regarding the overselling of college that George rightly keeps before our attention, my interview with Diane Auer Jones should be enlightening for professors, parents, and students alike. Diane, a biologist by training who served in the Department of Education under Margaret Spellings, discusses alternatives to the college degree that the U.S. should be developing and promoting, renders her expert opinions on President Obama’s education policies, describes the Spellings era at the DOE, and comments on recent controversies concerning women and science.
