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.
