More people are going to college than ever before, but a lot of them aren't finishing. The problem is especially profound among low-income students. Only nine percent complete a bachelor's degree by age 24. Why are so many students quitting, and what leads a few to beat the odds and make it through? In this documentary, American RadioWorks correspondent Emily Hanford introduces us to young people trying to break into the middle class, teachers trying to increase their chances, and researchers investigating the nature of persistence. 

Part one of a three part series being broadcast on Thursdays in November, not on Thanksgiving.

The Nanticoke Valley north of Binghamton was an important agricultural region for most of the 20th century, and day-to-day farm labor completed there was done primarily by women. The rise and decline of “family farms” and the importance of women’s work is traced in an exhaustive new book, Putting the Barn Before the House. Prize-winning historian Grey Osterud shares her findings with host Bill Jaker.
