Fixing Our Broken Colleges: Competency-Based Education and Reauthorizing the Higher Education Act | Committee for Economic Development of The Conference Board

It is that time of year again.  Students are graduating from high schools and colleges.  The press will be full of reports of who is delivering what commencement address where with what sage advice for all those new grads.  Booksellers will do a brisk business in Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go.  Meanwhile, for the approximately two thirds of high school graduates starting college next fall, schools have been chosen and deposits sent.  Visions of the college adventures that lie ahead may be dancing through their heads… while their parents ponder the tuition bills to be paid.
