In the News

Timothy BartikBrad HershbeinLast month, we posted a link to a New York Times op-ed, “College may not be worth it anymore,” that cited research by Timothy Bartik and Brad Hershbein, both from the Upjohn Institute. They published a response that argued that the op-ed distorted the implications of their research.

For reference, here’s the original Times op-ed.
