As I mentioned on Twitter, I popped down to DC yesterday for a panel discussion at the Center for American Progress.

Sponsored by their Campus Progress wing, along with USPIRG and the US Student Association, the panel was a discussion of the current wave of activism sweeping California, and the larger questions about college affordability that are raised by that organizing.

In addition to myself, the panel consisted of Victor Sanchez, the president of the University of California Student Association, Bruce Cain, director of the UC Washington Center, and Pedro de la Torre of Campus Progress. The whole thing was deftly moderated by CP’s Erica Williams, and I think it was illuminating and productive in all sorts of ways.

The panel was streamed live on the internet, and I’m told that the video may soon be made available for watching online. In the meantime, check out this excellent writeup from Inside Higher Ed.
