Obama gets an ‘F’ for higher ed reform proposals

President Barack Obama started a bus tour through the Northeast on Thursday to announce a new package of proposed higher education reforms. Following up on his speech about a month ago, in which he called for low cost, high quality education for all, the president layed out specific ideas to make that bechmark a reality.

“Higher education cannot be a luxury,” he said during his first speech on the tour. “Every American family should be able to get it.”

The president wants to keep tabs on each college’s performance and award federal aid to the right colleges so the cost of attendance goes down while quality goes up—government money would only reward success. ...

jpw, you aren't aware of the latest in water desalination plants are you? Israelis to design San Diego-area desalination plant that will be a really big one in the Western hemisphere?

What do you two mean? I wasn't to get any Veteran benefits for higher education! Wow! That's unpatriotic of you.

By the way, for lower the BS type of degree, it was all paid by my family -- but I realize not all people have the means. Now Pres. Obama has some realization that state universities are not just to be settings for farm teams of Amer. pro. sports. Something that has to really change, I think.

They should be places where kids --Who Want an Education!!!!!-- go to have as much knowledge pounded into their pointy little heads, and perhaps to be shown those points are to be points of light for reasoning.

I had (probably a Hindu teacher (maybe atheist)) who would throw students who came to class drunk, and they were thrown out permanently. This probably something that wouldn't happen today. I also had a professor, who should have been thrown out, because he was drunk in class.

Federal aid is given for research and to help kids who can't afford college, not a bad thing, if results are seen.

The SOURCE of the problem and the SOLUTION for it were in the last paragraph of the article.

"Leef said the waste in higher education comes from government intrusion that started in the 1960s. An influx of federal funds fueled higher tuition costs and started the race for expensive college amenities just to keep students happy. He said the president’s proposition just adds more gizmos and gadgets to a Rube Goldberg system: “There is nothing the federal government can do that would really make college more affordable and improve student education short of getting out of the way of the free market.”

there's nothing smart about it.

good education comes from solid, competent information, God-honoring understanding of our world -- you can't get fresh water from a salty sea.

there's not a thing that these groups are not aiming to unravel before our eyes.

wow.

let local farmers work with university programs to develop sustainable, healthy produce, such as the Christian gentleman of Polycarp Farms -- quit shutting down industry and let mom and pop trade their produce without being swat teamed.

the solutions are simple. we've got control freaks that won't let a single drop of rain come down without first getting some kind of approval.

when communism swept the east, many would be convinced to enter into such aggressions, thinking they would solve their problems. in the end, the people just get tired of the obsessive control, the harshness of neighbor against neighbor, and this kind of thing finally ebbs away. and then believers return with a fresh message of Christ.

Obama's Very Smart and Utterly Hopeless Plan to Make College Cheaper . This is an excellent idea, which the article itself points out will probably not happen.

homeschooled children use public school facilities quite often. If I was not using a tablet, and was that a desktop I would give the URL for the Nebraska educational television program on homeschool Nebraska. But such as goes.so there can be quite a bit of cooperation between homeschool families and public schools. Many times homeschoolers just don't have the physical equipment that the public schools have.

Why would homeschooled children be prohibited from entering the school grounds to play on the park equipment? It is a public playground.
