The John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy ran an article on Praxis, “Boot Camp for Professional Careers“.
From the article:
“Skyrocketing tuitions. Degree inflation. Politicized curriculums. Lowered job expectations upon graduation. Higher education in America is tangled with problems to such a degree that many have started to ask the question: is getting a traditional college education still worth it? So far, most people seem to think so, given enrollment numbers that remain relatively high.
Yet, not all do; some schools are starting to see signs of softening demand. The academic marketplace is attracting entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on the emerging market of young people and their parents who may consider alternatives before committing large sums of money for programs that might not be right for them.”
