Format: Paperback
Riptide is an important book. It not only documents the need for major revisions to the US system of higher education but goes on to offer practical suggestions about how to attain greater availability, accessibility and attainability of college degrees.

Format: Paperback
For those of us who have been privileged to pass our education in the old normal, this book is an awakening. It challenges everything we thought we knew about what a college education should be, or can be, today. The authors combine solid research with a sense of humor to demonstrate how the housing, financial and automotive industries and not the only ones in need of reinventing themselves. Drawing on their long experience, Angel and Connelly pose the problems starkly and offer concrete suggestions for what the new normal in higher education needs to look like. Reading RIPTIDE is an education.
