Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream
If you are a young person, and you work hard enough, you can get a college degree and set yourself on the path to a good life, right? Not necessarily, says Sara Goldrick-Rab, and with Paying the Price, she shows in damning detail exactly why.

Drawing on an unprecedented study of 3,000 young adults who entered public colleges and universities in Wisconsin in 2008 with the support of federal aid and Pell Grants, Goldrick-Rab reveals the devastating effect of these shortfalls. Half the students in the study left college without a degree, while less than twenty percent finished within five years. The cause of their problems, time and again, was lack of money. Unable to afford tuition, books, and living expenses, they worked too many hours at outside jobs, dropped classes, took time off to save money, and even went without adequate food or housing. In many heartbreaking cases, they simply left school-not with a degree, but with crippling debt. Goldrick-Rab combines that shocking data with devastating stories of six individual students, whose struggles make clear the horrifying human and financial costs of our convoluted financial aid policies.

Heart Of The Dales Unabridged Compact Disc,The
Gervase Phinn is back with his tales of life as a schools inspector in Yorkshire. His colourful cast of characters have now become firm favourites - the eccentric staff at County Hall as well as the children themselves who find ways of embarrassing the school inspectors with innocent ease. We reconvene with Christine Bentley, head teacher of Winnery Nook School, the well-named Mrs Savage and not forgetting the Queen of Clean - Connie. Gervase Phinn has an extraordinary talent to entertain, and the latest instalment to the "Dale" series is heart-warming, wry and will make you laugh out loud.

Walden on Wheels: On the Open Road from Debt to Freedom
The story of a student who went to extraordinary lengths - including living in a van on a campus parking lot - to complete his education without sacrificing his financial future. In a frank and self-deprecating voice, memoirist Ken Ilgunas writes about the existential terror of graduating from college with $32,000 in student debt. Inspired by Thoreau, Ilgunas set himself a mission: get out of debt as soon as humanly possible. To that end, he undertook an extraordinary 3-year transcontinental journey, driving to Alaska and taking a series of low-paying jobs. Debt-free, Ilgunas then enrolled himself in a master's program at Duke University, using the last of his savings to buy himself a used Econoline, his new "dorm." The van, stationed in a campus parking lot, would be an adventure, a challenge, a test of his limits. It would be, in short, his "Walden on Wheels." Ilgunas went public in a widely read Salon article that spoke to the urgent student debt situation in America today. He offers a funny and pointed perspective on the dilemma faced by those who seek an education but who also want to, as Thoreau wrote, "live deep and suck out all the marrow of life."

The Art of Being There: Creating Change, One Child at a Time
The powerful and inspiring story of a man who, instead of despairing over his own impoverished plight or the systems that make it hard for others to climb out of poverty, created a solution that's breaking cycles of poverty and bringing hope to a new generation.

With the fortitude to survive a poor home life growing up and eventually thrive, Duncan Campbell set out to make his mark in the world--but it wasn't the one he originally intended. After utilizing his entrepreneurial skills to amass a small fortune, Campbell set his sights on a venture he saw as far more worthwhile: helping the most vulnerable and at-risk children escape a fate of poverty.

Over the last two decades, Campbell's organization, Friends of the Children, has not only attempted but succeeded in eye-opening ways. The Art of Being There shares Campbell's inspirational journey along with the heart-warming stories of those he's helped.


Duncan's story is a moving reminder of the healing power of relationships and an excellent illustration of the social entrepreneur's journey.
- David Bornstein, Author of How to Change the World,
and Co-Author, Fixes Column, The New York Times

I don't casually toss words around like 'brilliant' and 'unique,' but what Campbell did is brilliant and unique. What he created in Portland could change the way this country tries to help children.
- Gary Walker, Former President,
Public/Private Ventures

Duncan Campbell has toiled for decades to give these kids a chance to achieve big things. Personally, he is a modest man, but I have seen firsthand how his quiet style has produced a legacy of powerful, constructive change.
-U.S. Senator Ron Wyden

Will College Pay Off?: A Guide to the Most Important Financial Decision You'll Ever Make
The decision of whether to go to college, or where, is hampered by poor information and inadequate understanding of the financial risk involved. Adding to the confusion, the same degree can cost dramatically different amounts for different people. A barrage of advertising offers us new degrees designed to lead to specific jobs, but we see no information on whether graduates ever get those jobs.

In Will College Pay Off?, Peter Cappelli, an acclaimed expert in employment trends, the workforce, and education, provides hard evidence that counters conventional wisdom and helps us make cost-effective choices. Among the issues Cappelli analyzes are:

What the real link is between a college degree and a job that enables you to pay off the cost of college
Why the most expensive colleges may actually be the cheapest in the long run
How parents and students can find out what different colleges actually deliver to students and whether it is something that employers really want
Insightful and informative, Will College Pay Off? helps students and parents make smart financial decisions and provides the foundation for students to succeed in the real world.
