In this politicized age, it seems like people don’t agree on much to do with education. For instance —

  • 57% of Republicans support charter schools, versus just 36% of Democrats.
  • Only 33% of Republicans think spending on public schools in their district should be increased, versus 58% of Democrats.
  • Just 28% of Republicans believe college is worth the cost, versus 43% of Democrats.

If you’re a private investor, those stats may make you feel nervous. For instance, you may not want to invest in a for-profit college during Donald Trump’s administration, if the next president may be Elizabeth Warren and the rules may change again.

 

One path forward lies in something everyone can agree on — that the U.S. education system needs to do better at preparing people for joining the workforce.

 

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for PE investing in the education sector at this all-day conference, chaired by Daniel Pianko, co-founder & managing director at University Ventures.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.

To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.

EDU PE conference packed & mood optimistic !

Yesterdays Capital Round Table conference for PE investing in EDU was a full house.  It was good to see some many of the industry’s players together in one room discussing current issues & trends facing Education.  In addition, Anthony Miller Deputy Secretary and Chief Operating officer at the U.S. Department of Education was there to answer questions regarding current and pending legislation.  Tony was refreshingly honest when he said the the Department understands and acknowledges that for profit education providers are critical to reach America’s goal of education attainment.  He praised the continued innovation provided by the industry and welcomes more of the same.

2012 Issues to remember:

 

The Change

  • A change in the President will result in a new DOE
  • A change in the Senate will result in a new head of the Senate Sub-Committee
The Result
  • A favorable shift in regulations will lift the entire industry
The Caution
  • The momentum to outcomes is already underway and will not change.  Broadly, this is good for the industry

 

MOST Important The three rules – #1 Student Success, #2 Student Success, #3 Student Success

Long-term strong demographics and demand create a solid base for growth

Regulatory changes are largely complete in post-secondary while valuations remain at historic lows

Dramatic changes in traditional schools are underway

Real opportunities exist to build world-class companies

Great outcomes=Great businesses

The next conference for PE in EDU I believe is in June or July, it’s worthwhile to attend!
