“The right policies can produce huge changes in the higher education market. If the U.S. is to reclaim its position as the most-educated nation in the world, then federal policy needs to shift from paying for and valuing time to paying for and valuing learning. What’s needed is a new regulatory framework that not just allows but encourages the creation of higher education programs based on learning instead of time.”
