ARW producer Emily Hanford is working on a documentary called “Some College, No Degree: Why So Many Americans Drop out of College, and What to Do About It.” She recently interviewed two economists who have done a lot of research on the value of college degrees. Over the next two weeks on the podcast, Emily Hanford will play some excerpts from those interviews.

Guest: Sandy Baum, Professor of Economics Emerita, Skidmore College and co-author of Education Pays, a report published every three years by the College Board.
