March 09, 2018

Andrew Hamilton, president of New York University, writes: Should the United States arm its school teachers, or ban the sale of assault weapons? Should we raise the age limit for buying rifles, or give police the power to remove guns from those they deem mentally ill?  What is the right answer to prevent another Parkland, another Sandy Hook, another Columbine? Americans want to know. Yet sadly, despite having world class researchers in public health and social sciences, we do not know. Why not?

Walter Kimbrough, president of Dillard University (LA), writes: In recent years, there has been an increased interest and concern in the rapidly rising student debt. Rightfully so.

After the Scandals, What Happens to Public School Students in College?

March 01, 2018

Patricia McGuire, president of Trinity Washington University (DC), writes: What’s next for high school students in the District of Columbia and Prince George’s County?  In the wake of scandals over attendance and graduation requirements in both systems, what will happen to the seniors eagerly awaiting college acceptance letters?

How to Sway Higher Ed’s Skeptics

February 27, 2018

Peter Salovey, president of Yale University (CT), writes: We cannot allow the public’s trust in higher education to erode further. Our colleges and universities are the bedrock of our democracy, places where the next generation learns how to think, communicate, and solve problems. They are incubators of new ideas and engines of prosperity. Our institutions serve the public good, and they need public support.
