Promoting accountability in higher education: Finding common ground – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise11th July 2019
America spends roughly $120 billion a year to support higher education. And yet, concerns about student debt continue to grow — for both graduates with significant debt and students who have smaller debt levels but have failed to obtain a degree. As Congress considers the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA), there is bipartisan interest in creating clearer expectations for institutions on completion and quality. But if done wrong, greater federal involvement in demanding accountability in higher education could open the door for gamesmanship, manipulation, and corner cutting, which hurts students and rips off taxpayers. So should Washington wade into this area?
Join AEI and Third Way for a panel discussion about where the left and right can find common ground on how to think about higher education accountability and HEA reauthorization.
Join the conversation on social media with #HEAreauthorization.
