This Center on Higher Education Reform report addresses America's failing student loan structure. The authors take an in-deth look at Income Share Agreements and their potential to replace traditional student loans.
AEI scholar Andrew P. Kelly reflects on the costly student aid system and its many failures - from the high schools that grant the diplomas to the colleges that gladly take Pell Grants from the underprepared to the students who fail to complete the courses.
Since the economic crisis, families have increasingly struggled with daily costs of living, let alone the cost of a college tuition. But, while the idea of a higher education "public option" may sound appealing, it does little to address the overall rising cost of higher education or student outcomes.
In this provocative volume, higher education experts explore innovative ways that colleges and universities can unbundle the various elements of the college experience while assessing costs and benefits and realizing savings.
As Harvard Education Press's just-released volume Stretching the Higher Education Dollar details, while existing higher education institutions can take some steps to contain their costs, truly low-cost higher education will likely come from an emerging wave of new providers such as university-online partnerships, massive open online courses, and competency-based education.
In this new volume, education experts explain why costs have risen so dramatically, and explore innovative ways that education stakeholders can “bend the college cost curve” in an effort to rein in tuition prices without forgoing quality.
Colleges’ exploitation of young Americans through rapidly rising and increasingly exorbitant fees is a national scandal that can no longer be ignored. In his college tour this week, President Barack Obama is speaking at length about what he intends to do about it, after promising “tough love” on higher education for the last two years.
Mr. Obama deserves recognition for putting forward a reasonable proposal that was in the ballpark of what Republicans would accept, and for rejecting partisan pleas to stick with his previous advocacy, electorally motivated, of setting low loan rates a year or two at a time.
At this event, Bennett and Wilezol will present their book, higher education finance experts Richard George and Richard Vedder will provide discussion, and a coffee reception and book signing will follow.
In this conference, veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, mental health and disability experts, and an economist will discuss current hurdles to rehabilitation, and suggest alternatives that could more effectively expedite the reintegration of veterans into their families, communities, and workplaces.
Please join Representative Randy Forbes (R-VA), AEI, the Heritage Foundation, and the Foreign Policy Initiative for a timely discussion on the 2014 QDR and the future of American defense strategy in an era of constrained budgets.
