Freeman Hrabowski and the Graduation Gap

Americans from poor families are far less likely to graduate from college than their better-off counterparts, a fact with major implications for society. We'll talk about the college graduation gap with Freeman Hrabowski, president of the University of Maryland Baltimore County; and David Laude, University of Texas at Austin senior vice provost for enrollment and graduation management, who created a successful program that improved graduation rates. Original air date 7/30/14 

Students from lower income families have a more difficult time graduating from college than their well-off counterparts.
