Is college worth the cost? Groundbreaking filmmaker Andrew Rossi asks the critical question about the value of higher education, revealing how colleges have come to embrace a business model that often promotes expansion over quality learning. With student-loan debt now over the one trillion dollar mark, the once-great American institution is at a breaking point. The film explores the current education crisis from the halls of Harvard, to community colleges, to online learning.

This is a great DVD for anyone who is gearing up for college and the parents who are helping them to gear up for it. It covers a wide variety of opinions on where the higher education institutions are going and what forces are driving students, professors, and administrators alike.

Very educational -- a solid and current (2013 / 14) survey of the economic and systematic issues facing higher education in the US. The filmmakers were strikingly adept at presentation of nuance and not advocating. They may at heart be advocates but they did not dumb it down.
