- What are the benefits - and challenges of college? Who should - and should not go to college? Robert J. Samuelson is a columnist for the Washington Post. In a column last May 28, he argud that "It's time to drop the college-for-all crusade." University System of Maryland Chancellor - and former University of Maryland President - William "Brit" Kirwan answered back June 7, arguing that it's "Not college for all, but college for more." The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland have brought the two men together to talk about this increasingly important issue looking at the future of education.
