 Keeping Colleges Affordable and Accountable 

7/19/2012

Federal lawmakers this week are examining strategies to keep college affordable while ensuring that students are getting the education and training they need for available jobs.

On Wednesday, the House Higher Education and Workforce Training Subcommittee heard from national and state education leaders on what states and colleges are doing to curb college costs and to ensure results. The strategies discussed ranged from performance-based funding and accelerated credential completion, to credit for prior learning experiences and better credit-transfer policies.

On Thursday, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will hold its hearing on college costs. Invited speakers include Thomas Snyder, president of the Ivy Tech Community College system in Indiana, and Jim Murdaugh, president of Tallahassee Community College in Florida.
