Video: Bruininks on Bright Ideas


For those who’ve missed it, the MPR Web site has the video and transcript of University of Minnesota President Robert Bruininks’ recent appearance on our Bright Ideas series with Stephen Smith.

In the discussion, which focuses on American higher education, Bruininks and Smith cover, among other things: tuition; the need to align K-12 and higher education; the effect of technology on costs; and the Troubled Waters flap.
