From Education Sector . . .
“Today’s colleges and universities are plagued by a host of problems: low graduation rates, high tuition rates, and poor student performance. But higher education has few incentives to address these problems. Thus, policymakers who want to fix the problems of American higher education need to create stronger accountability systems. In this new Education Sector report, Kevin Carey and Chad Aldeman describe the current state of the art in state higher education accountability and provide a set of guidelines for designing a model system.”
