Ashland U. Slashes Tuition by 37% – Bottom Line - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Ashland U. Slashes Tuition by 37% – Bottom Line - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | News & Views | Scoop.it
Raph Allwright's insight:
Reading more from the Higher Education Chronicle. It seems that smaller colleges in the US are trying to market their institutions as a reasonable cost option compared to their competition. They are not just reducing the cost, but also the financial aid packages students can get. I suppose with the age of MOOCs some colleges and universities may see the reducing of student fees better than going out of business as those with similar services but higher costs will loose out to MOOCs. Maybe, maybe not? We will see in the future.

Trainers Butt Heads With Coaches Over Concussion Treatment

Trainers Butt Heads With Coaches Over Concussion Treatment | News & Views | Scoop.it
A Chronicle survey reveals that football teams' medical staffers often pay a career price if they want more recovery time for players than coaches do.
Raph Allwright's insight:
Caught up with this article from the Higher Education Chronicle, and I can see how stuffed many in sports have become. The US college athletes do not get paid a cent, yet have scholarships etc… You could say, they are used for the colleges they represent to earn more money. Hmm, I seem to remember school boys and girls in Australian private schools doing the same. Being made to play sport when they were injured, or having to take drugs to continue or lose their scholarships. Oh, how you look back as see parallels, twenty years down the track.
