When Setting our Nation’s Education Priorities, Don’t Lose Sight of the End Game

Students, employers, funding sources and governance boards must have confidence in the trustworthiness and fairness of the higher education system and specifically in preparing graduates for the workforce.

As conversations with Ms. DeVos continue, and as priorities for higher education are molded in the coming months, we’d like to offer some perspective as policymakers carefully consider the future of education in America. We urge them to take care in reviewing the Accreditation Reform and Enhanced Accountability Act of 2016 (S.3380), introduced last year, and not add to the confusion about accreditation in our country.
