Julia Lawrence’s recent article in Education News (“Americans Opinion of Higher Ed System at Record Lows”) suggests we have lost some traction with the public. Concerns over the cost of education have been a longstanding concern (rightfully so) but recently, more and more members of the community are wondering about the value of education. This is new and needs to be addressed by all of us in higher ed. My question (for my Crafton Hills friends/colleagues in particular) is as follows. Imagine a single mom is thinking about sending her child to Crafton. She is going to pay for everything (books, tuition, food, housing, etc.) but she is not certain if it will be worth it. What do you tell her? What will her son or daughter experience at Crafton that merits the cost?
