September 27, 2010

Episode 70: As the Senate education committee prepares to hold its next hearing on the for-profit sector this week, proprietary institutions are stepping up their public defense, in part through aggressive, multimillion-dollar advertising campaigns. Kelly Field and Sara Hebel talk about the colleges' message and how it is playing in Washington.


Kelly Field, The Chronicle's chief Washington reporter, and Sara Hebel, our politics editor, spend a minute (or so) each week discussing the key higher-education debates and behind-the-scenes maneuvering taking place in the nation's capital. Look for new episodes every Tuesday.
