Academic Freedom and the Rising Cost of College Textbooks

Hosted by

Instead of requiring students to buy a book for $180, a math professor at Cal State Fullerton assigned one that goes for $76 and another that's free. But the expensive text was written by two senior department officials, and the professor's in trouble. We preview a faculty hearing set for tomorrow.

Also on the program, Governor Brown won't recognize the diversity among California's Asians, and Don Mattingly won't be around to manage the Dodgers next year.
