In a rare moment of bipartisanship, US Senators and Representatives are uniting to help curb tuition by proposing a series of measures to make colleges more transparent. These measures include requiring colleges to standardize financial aid letters and disclose how much debt their average students will incur, as well as chart expected job placement statistics and earnings post- graduation. Ironically, higher education institutions have spent millions of dollars lobbying against these efforts claiming that job placement, earnings, and debt statistics do not portray the value of their overall education. What’s your opinion? Should Congress work to move forward with these bi-partisan proposals? LIKE = YES & COMMENT = NO
