Online schools continue to be concerned over State approval requirements

government cracking down on collegesMany of the school systems we have spoken to continue to stress about the state approval requirements due to be in place by July.. It’s hard to imagine the burden the Govt. has placed on the many high quality education providers within our industry.  Clearly many of them will not be able to achieve overall approval by the deadline.  Does that only hurt the school or company?  What about the students that have begun working towards their degrees?  They continue to raise the bar as they go, yet they fail to even  pretend to hold traditional post secondary institutions as accountable…

The common response from the govt. is that we need to continue to install checks and balances, yet they clearly have no checks and balance to the plethora of new rules & laws that they create.   Wouldn’t common sense dictate that an easy check and balance would be what’s good for the goose is good for the gander?   Why don’t they hold all colleges and universities to the same standards?

State of the Union to plead for more spending in Education…

State of the UnionDid you hear about all of the build up relating to the State of the Union address?  Specifically regarding additional spending necessary in education to help us all build a better future.  I think we can agree that education is of utmost importance for solidifying our future, provided it’s unbiased spending…

And not just more of the same reckless spending to continue to build those ivory towers, gyms and stadiums.  Lets invest in the people who need education allowing them ability to access it, not in the old world institutions so that they can raise their tuition’s from $55,000 per year to $ 60,000…

It’s funny (sad kind of funny) that the very political party who is preaching the value of education and the countries need to invest in it, are also the ones making politically motivated, shortsighted, ill thought out and biased changes which will  be a crushing blow to it…

So what are the saying, that everyone needs to pay more taxes so that people can pay more than they should have to in order to attend only certain colleges, only the ones they choose?

Sounds reasonable…

Oh, and those colleges who are willing to reduce their tuition’s to help affordability and reduce dept, but because their tuition is less expensive and thus costs less then available government funding programs will fall out of compliance???

Call me crazy, but this just reiterates that the phrase government intelligence is an oxymoron!!!
