“Higher education” will always exist. How long it will exist in the present format is another question. The higher education “brand” is still valued as a credential to success. But increasingly, colleges and universities are losing control over how education is delivered and priced and how long it takes to earn the credential.
- Illinois Bill Would End a Prized Perk: Tuition Discounts for Faculty and Staff… the half-price discount costs the state about $8 million a year.
- Could Many Universities Follow Borders Bookstores Into Oblivion?… reviewing changes in education delivery, including free learning from MIT, Georgia Tech, Khan Academy and more.
- 5 Private Liberal-Arts Colleges Will Share a Professor… reducing cost in a “non-elite” sector that’s at risk.
- More Than 70 U. of Northern Iowa Programs Face Elimination or Overhaul… this has been happening elsewhere and we should expect more in the future.
- Indiana Seeks to Cap College Credits at 120… exceptions allowed for accreditation requirements in another legislative move to control higher education cost.
