CAREER SCHOOL tells the story of a prestigious Philadelphia college selling its soul to make a profit. Its heroes include Oliver Dunbar, a kind-hearted school director and twenty-year advocate of education, now forced against his will to think like a businessman; Lily Espirito, a beautiful but ruthless admissions director who will let nothing stop her from making her enrollment goals; Louise, a cynical bursar; Ethel, the stalwart dean; and David, a financial aid director who would rather be painting. It’s a story of academic integrity clashing with greed, scandal, sex, and human frailty, set at an institution of higher learning where students come from all economic spheres—from the wealthy Main Line suburbs to the city’s worst housing projects—with the dream of getting a degree and a chance at a better life, and trusting that their college will always have their best interests at heart.Funny, passionate, and offering rare insight in the dynamics of running a small college, CAREER SCHOOL is one of the important social stories of our time.
