“It is time to stop subsidizing schools (colleges & universities) that are not producing good results.” (Obama)


NYT blog: The president said rising prices at colleges were partly driven by the distribution of $150 billion in federal assistance to students. He said colleges that allowed tuition to soar should be penalized by getting less federal aid for their students, while colleges that held down costs should get more of the money. He has also announced plans to create a federal rating system that would allow parents and students to easily compare colleges and would urge Congress to pass legislation to link the student aid to the rating system.

I am delighted to share that at NEU we are developing a learning analytics platform that will continuously collect data on key performance indicators to help us make effective decisions.
