The first, and most informative piece of writing on the higher education bubble is actually a blog. Although it provides some extraneous details, the article does explain why it is referred to as a “bubble” and not something else.
The second article, directed to students, is done by the Harvard Crimson with heavy emphasis on student experiences. It lacks some of the basic information we might want, but it does have a student-directed feel to it. Using perspectives of students and using their voices to tell the story helps me identify with the piece because it feels more direct than other pieces.
But regardless of which one you may read, the overarching idea is that students like us are in a very delicate spot to be on the wrong end of this bubble.
