With the midterm elections looming and the debate over who benefits from student loan forgiveness heating up, what are voters thinking about the value of a college education in 2022? Kristen Soltis Anderson, pollster and author of The Selfie Vote, joins the podcast to talk about the American public's perception of higher education. Does the noise in the media reflect what people—especially millennials and Gen Z—really think? Is there a split between what people view as good for their own families and what they think is important for society overall, and how has this changed over time? What are the partisan divides on this issue?
