Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 7:00pm

Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed, analyzes higher education in the United States in his newest book. Does college actually work? Through exhaustive social research, Tough discerns that social mobility, a defining feature of the American dream, is determined in large part by the decisions one makes about higher education. He examines every aspect of the process from standardized tests to the admissions process to college life. The author scrutinizes the impact privilege and wealth have on a student’s ability to achieve a degree, while also offering promising stories of low-income students who are finding success against difficult  odds. Tough’s compelling writing is a must-read for aspiring college students and their parents. A Parenting Series event. For adults.
