Next Wednesday, May 11th, FRC will host a panel discussion of the Obama Administrations efforts to cripple for-profit higher education institutions through new government regulations from the Department of Education. Todays Washington Times has a good background article on this debate by Ben Wolfgang. I also highly recommend panelist Richard Bishirjians article The Coming Brave New World of Higher Education which argues that the current model of higher education is unsustainable and will be replaced by something akin to what he describes in his analysis. Look here also (Recognize that the actual cost of an education, the cost of books and room and board , is about 75% higher than the average middle class family is able to pay.).
