Are Betsy Devos’s Policies Exacerbating Racial Inequities in Student Debt? These Lawmakers Think So.

Are Betsy Devos’s Policies Exacerbating Racial Inequities in Studen...

June 19, 2018

Senate and House Democrats are accusing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos of exacerbating racial disparities in student debt by failing to help defrauded borrowers, enforce consumer protections and examine the root causes of debt inequity.  They point to the rewriting of Obama-era regulations intended to guard against predatory for-profit colleges, highlighting two rules known as borrower defense to repayment and gainful employment. As originally conceived, those regulations would benefit students of color, who at higher rates enroll in for-profit schools, take out loans, fail to graduate and default on the debt.

As Pathway Market Expands, Enrollment Outcomes Diverge

As Pathway Market Expands, Enrollment Outcomes Diverge

June 19, 2018

Growing numbers of American universities are contracting with corporate entities to recruit for and help manage first-year “pathway” programs for international students who don’t meet the criteria for direct admission. The number of such pathway programs in the U.S. has grown from a mere handful to more than 50 within the past decade. The programs proliferate even as the total number of new international students coming to the U.S. declines and competition for every full-pay international student intensifies.

Want to Kill Tenure? Be Careful What You Wish for

Want to Kill Tenure? Be Careful What You Wish for

June 19, 2018

Wisconsin, Kentucky, Arkansas, and Tennessee have all made policy moves in recent years that have sought to to weaken tenure, or that faculty members have interpreted as threats to it. Leaders of some private colleges who want to adapt more quickly to marketplace demands have invoked dire institutional finances as a reason to propose — if not always follow through on — cutting tenured faculty. For both political reasons and because of institutional policy choices, tenure arguably faces more peril now than it has in nearly 70 years.
