Green Mountain College, which closed in 2019.

It’s been called the “birth dearth”: America’s slowed birth rate. And it’s shaking the world of higher education.

On this Vermont Edition: low student enrollment, financial strain, and the future of Vermont’s college landscape. Brave Little State host Angela Evancie and reporter Amy Kolb Noyes tackle three listeners' college questions. 

Plus: a look at national trends in higher education.  We check in with The Washington Post's Danielle Douglas Gabriel.

Broadcast at noon on Wednesday, January 19, 2020. Rebroadcast at 7:00 p.m.
