In this second event of the series, join Literary Studies co-chair, Carolyn Berman in a conversation with Anya Kamenetz, the author of Generation Debt, DIY U, and The Test

Anya Kamenetz is NPR's lead education blogger. She joined NPR in 2014, working as part of a new initiative to coordinate on-air and online coverage of learning.

Kamenetz is the author of several books about the future of education, including Generation Debt (Riverhead, 2006), which dealt with youth economics and politics and DIY U: Edupunks, Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education (Chelsea Green, 2010), which investigated innovations to address the crises in cost, access, and quality in higher education. Her latest book, The Test (PublicAffairs, 2015), is about the past, present and future of testing in American schools.
