What Neil deGrasse Tyson Thinks Higher Ed Gets Wrong

In this interview with The Chronicle of Higher Education, Tyson discusses "how to explain science to the masses and [rips] into what he sees as higher education’s misguided incentive system, valuing research over teaching and public service and not creating space for people like him to flourish. 'It’s a sad fact,' he says, 'for the future of science in America.' "

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is one of Tyson's most recent books.  The science library's copy is checked out, but there are plenty of other copies to borrow through OhioLINK.
