Imagine a United States where everyone has access to higher education and the chance for lifelong learning and anyone with the aptitude, persistence, and commitment to a degree program qualifies for a better life.
Courageous Learning, a captivating 30-minute documentary, features insights from the nation’s foremost continuing education and workforce development experts and profiles a nation challenged to rethink its approach to higher education in the face of vast economic change.
There are more than 93 million Americans in the workforce today without a degree. Their standard of living is falling and their earnings gap is increasing. These adults missed their chance to go to college — or never finished a degree program.
Courageous Learning follows the lives of three adult students: Shawn, Joe, and Angeline – a veteran, a single dad, and a nurse – as they face obstacles in the pursuit of higher education.
