Obama plan won’t control college costs

President Obama’s college rating plan won’t control college costs, an analyst argues.

Proposed changes in financial aid designed to improve completion rates could limit low-income students’ access to college, a new report warns.

  1. “Proposed changes in financial aid designed to improve completion rates could limit low-income students’ access to college, a new report warns.”

    Yes, a conclusion so blindingly obvious that you think the Obama administration and Democrats would get it. But then again, they pushed the Affordable Care Act, which is proving to not be affordable and make care a scarce commodity, so why are we surprised?

  2. Every domestic policy initiative of the Obama administration indicates far greater concern for unionized public-sector workers than for taxpayers of clients of public-sector institutions (students, hospital patients, national park visitors, etc.). Goldrick-Rab’s accurate criticisms of the administration’s policy do not validate her self-serving policy alternative.

    I have little to add to the comment I left at Joanne’s post-secondary site.

    If it is fraud for s mechanic to charge for the repair of a functional motor, and if it is fraud for a physician to charge for the treatment of a healthy patient, then it is fraud for a teacher, school, school district, or government to charge taxpayers or students for the instruction of s student who does not need our help. Credit-by-exam, for all courses required for graduation, would bust the unionized, tax-subsidized “public” K-PhD education racket.

  3. Well obviously college costs are not going to be controlled to where low income people can attend. It’s just not a priority right now with obamacare and everything!
