A Disrupted Higher-Ed System - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education

A Disrupted Higher-Ed System - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

The “disruption” of the higher-ed market is a popular refrain these days. Rising tuition prices and student debt have left many wondering if the current model is indeed broken and whether those like Harvard’s Clay Christensen are right when they say that innovations in course delivery will eventually displace established players.

 

What exactly those innovations will look like remains a matter of debate. One view from Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, envisions a future in which every industry will be disrupted and “rebuilt with people at the center.”

 

In this recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sandberg talked specifically about the gaming industry, which has been upended by the popularity of social-gaming venues, such as Words With Friends and Farmville.

The Higher Education Bubble [infographic]

The Higher Education Bubble [infographic] | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

Student loans are one of the biggest problems facing our country at the moment. Thousands of students attend university and even if they drop out, students still end up with mountains of debt. This debt can follow them throughout their life.

 

Today’s infographic says 85% of today’s college graduates will move back in with their parents after school. I know my parents would love seeing my face more around the house, although they would probably prefer I get a job after college. If only higher education didn’t cost as much.

 

Key takeaways:

 

- Student loans surpassed credit card debts.

- Students now graduate with an average debt of $24,000.00.
