President Obama weighs in on higher education

Published: January 30, 2012 | Category: Top Post

The president made headlines recently with with remarks on the state of American higher education. In his state of the union address, President Obama announced that he would put colleges on notice and unveiled the details of this mantra during another speech at the University of Michigan.

The president’s policy aims to reduce the cost of college tuition by tying it to three main factors:

  • Setting a responsible tuition policy
  • Providing good value to students
  • Enrolling and graduating large numbers of low-income students

While this plan will likely be debated and somewhat marginalized as a campaign tool, we at ProctorU always welcomes an initiative that aims to make higher education more accessible.
