The School for College Dropouts
Adrienne Day, NationSwell
A promising degree-completion model called College Unbound is designed to help adults with some college credit but no degree get back on track and graduate. Many of the learners that College Unbound caters to are underrepresented, nontraditional college students who have full-time, low-wage jobs.
In this interview, the founder of College Unbound, Dennis Littky, discusses how the school supports adult students, why a bachelor of arts degree still matters, and how to get credit for one's "life" work.
