    Saturday December 13th, Dr. Anthony DiMaggio presents “The Higher Education Ponzi Scheme.”

    Saturday December 13th, Open University of the Left welcomes back Dr. Anthony DiMaggio. Tony earned his PhD in political science from the University of Illinois, Chicago. He is the author of at least five books. He has also written for numerous on-line and print publications including Counterpunch, Znet and Monthly Review just to name a few.

    As can be seen from the title of his talk Tony will be discussing the growing problems found in higher education in the United States. Some topics discussed will include the rapidly declining state of higher education brought on in part by the abandonment of teaching itself, as a priority. He will also address the growing and unsustainable cost of higher education, which includes paradoxically the sorry state of higher education employment and the decline of faculty job security in the neoliberal era. Tony has experienced the problems affecting higher education from a first-hand perspective over the last decade, teaching and having taught at liberal arts colleges, major state universities, and at the community college level.
