I am honored to have just published a new paper, “Still Public: State Universities and America’s New Student Debt Coalitions”, as part of a symposium in the PS: Political Science & Politics.

Tobias Schulze-Cleven of Rutgers edited the symposium and did a wonderful job assembling a collection of works by young scholars under the banner of “Higher Education in the Knowledge Economy: Politics and Policies of Transformation.” You can read the full collection of articles here.

My contribution, “Still Public,” explains why student organizations and labor unions at public universities have formed the backbone of new coalitions to reduce the burden of student debt – even though problems from student debt like defaults tend to be lower for public university students that students at non-profit, for-profit, and community colleges.
