The Occupy Wall Street movement is spreading to college campuses, where students are protesting rising tuition costs and poor job prospects in today's economy. One expert suggests cutting costs and streamlining college course offerings might produce graduates with more earning potential in the long term.

American RadioWorks host Stephen Smith interviews Anne Neal, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, who says it's incumbent upon colleges to create stronger core curricula so that students graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to survive in any economic climate.
