Watch Live: Virtual Session

Our system of higher education in the U.S. has long favored the wealthy, but fallout from the coronavirus is exposing vast inequities that could push higher education further out of reach for many. Best-selling author Paul Tough, in conversation with Hechinger Report editor-in-chief Liz Willen, will discuss the implications of this growing divide and the troubled road ahead for the students he wrote about in his recent book, "The Years that Matter Most."
