President Obama Offers Plan to Make Colleges More Affordable and Accountable | PBS NewsHour | Aug. 22, 2013

President Obama Offers Plan to Make Colleges More Affordable and Accountable | PBS NewsHour | Aug. 22, 2013 | Penguinstep MOOC news & reviews | Scoop.it
President Barack Obama's new plan to make higher education more affordable includes a rating system that links federal dollars to schools' cost and performance.
penguinstep MOOC news & reviews's insight:

But, actually, some of the language that Obama used, especially talking about rebooting regulation and moving toward more competency-based degrees and programs I think can be very helpful for the kind of working adult that President Mellow talked about.

I mean, online degree programs, competency-based programs, blended learning programs, and recovering some of those 37 million adults who have some college and no degree, getting them back into the program, I think innovations of different kinds can help address all of those issues. And, you know, it doesn't make sense just to focus on the acceleration.
