“America’s Promise” free community college scheme promises low academic standards, high national debt

In an attempt to circumvent Congress and move the free college agenda forward, The White House will launch a $100 million grant program for free community college tuition. The new program, America’s Promise Grants, was unveiled last week by Vice President Biden in a speech at the Community College of Philadelphia.

Opportunities Behind Bars Can Generate Opportunities for a Life Outside

On Friday, September 18, the Bard Debate Union at Eastern New York Correctional Facility defeated the Harvard University debate team in intercollegiate competition. The significance of such a win highlights more than just the dedication and skill of the winning team, it establishes credibility toward the efforts behind the Bard Prison Initiative (“BPI”) and the idea that providing prisoners access to education is an option worthy of consideration.

The United States desperately needs justice reform, but it must be accomplished through Congress

The Obama administration will, today, unveil its plan to restore federal funding for inmates to take college courses. The tool to be used is Pell grants, the main form of federal aid for low-income college students. The grants cover up to $5,775 a year in tuition, fees, books and other education related expenses.

Reauthorizing the Higher Education Act: Strict Regulation Leads to Information Overload

This month the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions held a hearing on the Higher Education Act, which was originally passed in 1965. The primary topic for the duration of the two hour hearing was the collection and dissemination of data from colleges and universities.

How Over-Regulation Kills Opportunity

Much of the Bill of Rights is dedicated to protecting accused persons, an action integral to our society. Expanding upon the Sixth Amendment’s granted right to legal counsel, states have put legislation in place that strictly dictates who can practice law. While such regulations aim to protect citizens, they have adverse effects and actually abridge the freedoms we hold dear.

Disrupting the student loan bubble

In 21st century America, disruptive technology is all around us. Smartphone apps allow us to summon transportation at the touch of a button, to book accommodations in a stranger’s apartment, to arrange an impromptu dinner party with people we have never met and to navigate our way through unfamiliar cities without the need of a map or compass.

How to Take a Stand Against Classroom Bullying and Bias

As students of all ages go back to school, we need to address a very important issue. This issue is one I brought up this past March; bias and bullying in the classroom. In the course of the past few weeks, we have seen this issue reemerging in the national media. Teachers on both ends of the political spectrum are guilty of bias, and sometimes bullying, and it needs to end.

Oregon's Plan To Set Up A College Tuition Ponzi Scheme

A lot of ink has been spilled in covering the latest cockamamie idea coming out of Oregon; the so-called 'Pay it forward, Pay it back' college tuition scheme. What's striking is that the state legislature and one US Senator are giving serious consideration to what amounts to a Social Security style Ponzi Scheme - a massive redistribution plan that is doomed to fail.  This is all in an effort to create a utopian pipe dream that would magically erase the terms 'debt' and 'tuition' from our lexicon when discussing higher education.
