The panel discussion I participated in yesterday at the Center for American Progress in Washington DC is now online. It was a good discussion, I think, and particularly timely given the events of the last week in California.

Along with myself, the panel included Tiffany Loftin, vice president of the United States Student Association, and PIRG campus organizer Dan Herb. Louis Soares of CAP and White House education policy advisor Zakiya Smith gave opening remarks, and the panel was moderated by CAP Policy Analyst Julie Morgan, lead author of a new report on student involvement in higher education governance.

C-SPAN broadcast the panel live, and they’ve got a copy of it up as well. (Not sure why they chose to title the event “Students Discuss Higher Education,” by the way. Though two of the three of us on the panel were young activists, none were actual students.)
