What happens when a diploma becomes just a piece of paper? In PBS documentary "Declining By Degrees: Higher Education At Risk," Peabody Award-winning journalist John Merrow investigates the silent crisis that threatens to diminish the quality of educationwithin America's colleges. The combination of low student standards, unfocused professors and lack of funding and instruction time has led to an era of substandard graduates with few marketable skills. Merrow travels to colleges across the country to interview students and educators about this worrisome trend and discuss how it might be reversed.
