This book exposes US Higher Education's Broken Business Model: Proposes No-Frills Public Option Break Graduation Gridlock without busting the taxpayer
This book exposes US Higher Education's Broken Business Model: Proposes No-Frills Public Option Break Graduation Gridlock without busting the taxpayer. Statistics show that 45 out of 100 who start college today will not finish, about the same drop-out rate we find in our worst performing inner city schools. Those who do finish college take on average about six years to do so. Only 15 out of 100 college students now fit the traditional profile, the other 85 struggle to complete degrees in non-traditional academic setting while trying to work.
Two richly-experienced university executives--a five-time college president and a business school dean drawn from a successful leadership career in financial services--have combined their perspectives to reveal how America has lost its world-leading edge in higher education, and how to get it back before it's too late.
