Why Men Are Skipping College

think.kera.org 1

Women now make up almost 60 percent of all college students, in part because an increasing number of men are skipping college. Douglas Belkin covers higher education for The Wall Street Journal, and he joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the widening gap between men and women in higher education, the disillusionment of those who dropped out or feel left behind, and what universities are doing to reach out to men. His recent article is headlined “A Generation of American Men Give Up on College: ‘I Just Feel Lost.’”
