Why does free public education end with high school? At a time when at least some college education seems essential, why is 12th grade free but the 13th costs thousands of dollars? Using logic, history and examples from other states, UMass Amherst professor Max Page makes the case for free public higher education in Massachusetts.

Page was one of eight speakers to present at MTA’s “ED Talks: Big Ideas About Education” on Aug. 4, 2014, in Williamstown, Mass. He is a professor of architecture and history, a longtime labor activist and co-author of "The Future of Higher Education," which he published in 2011 with UMass sociology professor Dan Clawson.
