The Higher Education Act and Accreditation Reform: America’s Higher Education Is in Dire Need of Reform

The average college student leaves school with more than $26,000 in debt, and total student loan debt in the United States now exceeds $1 trillion. At the same time, too many students leave college without the skills needed to be successful in the workforce. And yet, despite the dire state of today’s higher education system, there is hope on the horizon: By favoring knowledge and skill acquisition over seat time, online options and competency-based learning are disrupting the traditional higher education market and perhaps have laid the foundation for a revitalization of American education. Despite the promise presented by these innovations, however, the antiquated higher education accreditation process remains a considerable obstacle to reform. Congress may also soon consider various proposals to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, which governs all federal student loans and grants.

The Weakness of the West

The world is becoming increasingly dangerous, but the West seems reluctant to defend its values against barbarism and protect its interests against naked aggression. The borders of Europe were forcibly redrawn when Russia illegally annexed Crimea. Russia continues to bring instability to eastern Ukraine making a fragile ceasefire unlikely to hold much longer. The Islamic State is reigning terror across the Middle East, beheading Western captives and establishing a caliphate that threatens to undermine the core values of the West. This is in addition to other challenges including the rise of China, a nuclear armed Iran and continued economic troubles. Even so, the West appears fractured, weak, and slow responding to these challenges. What can the West do to ensure that Russia’s aggression is checked and that the evil forces behind the Islamic State are destroyed? Why has the West been so weak in confronting these challenges?

Where Is Liberalism Going?

Twenty-five years ago, marriage meant what it had always meant, Madonna was considered risqué, and liberals worried about mass immigration, threats to religious liberty and the vulgarity of pop music. The times, they have a-changed. And they will continue to change as the Left presses on.
