BONUS: EdUp Embedded - The Tuition Payer Bill of Rights

In this EdUp Embedded episode of The EdUp Experience, Dr. James Toscano and Dr. Joe Sallustio have a one-on-one conversation about the Tuition Payer Bill of Rights  Championed by Partners for College Affordability and Public Trust, the Tuition Payer Bill of Rights™ is a series of long-overdue consumer protections that, among other fundamental rights, will ensure that consumers either get what they pay for or a refund. Along with the initiative’s coalition partners, Partners believes students should not have to pay the same price for lesser quality instruction or be required to pay for on-campus services they aren’t able – or don’t want – to use.

Dr. James Toscano is the president of Partners for College Affordability and Public Trust and is a national leader in the fight to make college more affordable for American students and families. With a career that spans both public policy and higher education, Toscano brings a practitioner’s perspective to bear on both the challenge--and opportunity--of transforming institutions of higher education. During Toscano’s tenure as a vice president at Tidewater Community College, one of the largest in the U.S., the college was the nation’s leader and model for lowering the cost of education for students through the innovative use of open educational resources.
