Folbre’s Saving State U reviewed by Inside Beat

Nancy Folbre, UMass Amherst Economics Professor

Nancy Folbre’s book, Saving State U:  Fixing Public Higher Education, was reviewed by the Inside Beat.   The book, which makes a case for strengthening public support for higher education, received a favorable review.  “Folbre’s writing, in both style and context, doesn’t pull any punches, which is really refreshing, especially in a debate such as this. Using hard data about tuitions and other incurred costs, she stresses the need for government funding in state universities. Her accessible style and clear-cut ideas help to take a complex issue that affects thousands across the nation and break it down into logical, effective arguments.”
