Where Graduates Move After College

Where Graduates Move After College

May 15, 2018

A college education is often a ticket to the best career opportunities. For most graduates, that means moving to the nation’s biggest metropolitan areas, boosting the intellectual capital that helps those cities thrive. But the patterns vary widely by city and by institution. Working with EMSI, a labor-market research firm, we've gathered data for 445 prominent research universities and liberal arts colleges, as well as NCAA Division I schools, detailing where their alumni move after college. The maps below show their movement to 70 big metropolitan areas, as well as the share who move to smaller communities.

Education Groups Urge Congress to Act on Net Neutrality

Education Groups Urge Congress to Act on Net Neutrality

May 15, 2018

Groups representing K-12 schools, educational technology providers and research libraries are urging Congress to support a resolution led by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) to reinstate net neutrality rules. Net neutrality regulations were repealed by the Republican-controlled Federal Communications Commission in December, amid concerns from education advocates that the use of technology in the classroom would suffer.

How Yale's 'Failed' Income Share Experiment Worked for Me - Opinion

How Yale's 'Failed' Income Share Experiment Worked for Me - Opinion

May 15, 2018

Blair Levin, non-resident senior fellow with the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program and oversaw the development of the 2010 United States National Broadband Plan, writes:  In 1973, I applied to Yale (CT) on a lark.  I started my college experience at the University of California, Santa Cruz.  But halfway through the first semester of my sophomore year at UCSC, I dropped out to work on Tom Bradley’s mayoral campaign. After the victory, I expected to return to UCSC, though I did apply to transfer to Yale.  When I was accepted, I had no idea how to pay for it. Then I got an unusual offer. In exchange for a percentage of my income after graduation, Yale would front me the cost of tuition.

Letitia Chai’s senior thesis presentation started out normally enough. But within three minutes, Chai had stripped down to her underwear.  The Cornell University (NY) college student’s act became a viral talking point on the internet, fueling an already raging debate about what women and girls are expected to wear in the classroom. Increasingly, students are calling out their school dress codes, often arguing that they force women and girls to change their behavior to avoid distracting boys and men.

The College That Wants to Take Over Washington

May 14, 2018

Trump University never died. It’s located in the middle of bucolic southern Michigan, halfway between Lansing and Fort Wayne, 100 miles and a world away from Detroit.  It’s a place called Hillsdale College, and on Saturday, May 12, Vice President Mike Pence will bless the right-leaning college’s graduation ceremonies, delivering a commencement address to this year’s 367-strong crop of mostly young conservatives.
