Take Note: Starving the Beast - Defunding Higher Education

A discussion with the producer of "Starving the Beast: the Battle to Disrupt and Reform America's Public Universities," and the Penn State professor who brought the film to Penn State/State College.

A 35-year process of defunding public universities has coincided with soaring tuition costs and skyrocketing student debt.  The documentary Starving the Beast looks at both sides of the debate, which some say is one of the nation's most important and least understood fights.  Our guests are Bill Banowsky, producer of the film, and Matt Jordan, a professor of Media Studies at Penn State.
