Obama education plan – Obamacare – Syria issue – Navy yard firing or Kenya mall attack...we need to just wait and watch...
President Obama visited the State University of New York at Buffalo in August to unveil and explain his plans for higher education reforms including rating schools the way they prepare students for careers - as the federal aid will be purely basis the college performance; further universities were sent across notices that they might have to change the way of doing business now on.
We all are aware that President Obama's college affordability plan got eclipsed by the turmoil over Syria issue now followed with government shutdown - however they claim that it will be back this fall when hopefully and by that time the true benefit of it will get an airing.
The proposed Education plan has started receiving mixes reviews - feedbacks and acceptance levels from the educators - US department of education is currently busy deriving the new ranking system that could and would be implemented by the year 2015 academic year - while it will also be published on the education department’s college scorecards. The idea behind the ranking systems it to rate the institutes basis their affordability - number of students who availed Pell grants - loan debt loan debt - graduation rates and earnings graduation rates and advanced degrees earned by students. A lot of the data and observations from the aforesaid are available at U.S. education department and Bureau of Labor Statistics; whereas appropriate data about graduate earning has been a challenge for the department of education and are rigorously working to collate it from schools and colleges; which are required by law to release it.
