I found the following segment of The Brian Lehrer Show to be very interesting and informative.
It is a discussion about the Cost of Higher Learning. The discussion is in the context of the American mid-term elections. A substantial portion of the discussion is very American focused but the overall issues are the same. The balancing act of how to fund Higher Education with other budget pressures, how to be assist the middle and lower classes to afford Higher Education. I would not take time out of the day to listen to it, but if you can listen while doing something else, I give it a recommendation.
The discussion panel consists of:
Jeff Selingo, editor at the Chronicle of Higher Education; and
Sandi Baum, senior policy analyst for the College Board and professor of Economics at Skidmore College
