Thursday, June 25, 2009

Whittier College President Sharon Herzberger spoke about the role that education plays in both social progress and economic recovery for a recent article in Currents magazine. 

Herzberger is quoted saying, "For too long we have talked about education as a private good. It is time to shift our rhetoric and reemphasize the role of education as a public good, recognizing a well-educated citizenry and wide access to education benefits us all."
