I thought that these stories were not getting enough press…

“Report Warns Against Tying Student Aid to Measures Like Graduation Rates”
"Awarding student financial aid to colleges based on outcome measures, like graduation rates, could harm low-income students and the colleges that serve them, according to a new analysis by the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance.
“Accreditor Defends Its Halt-Enrollment Order to an Online Program of Tiffin U.”
“The accrediting body that last month ordered Tiffin University to halt enrolling students in the Ivy Bridge College program it operates with a for-profit company said on Monday that the online associate-degree program had had problems with academic rigor, student retention, and the quality of its course content”.
“Fairmont State Dean Arrested on Sexual Assault Charges”
“Peter Lach, dean of fine arts at Fairmont State University, has been charged by West Virginia authorities with second-degree sexual assault, and has been placed on administrative leave, The Charleston Gazette reported. A male employee told authorities that while he was in Lach's office, Lach pulled down the employee's pants and restrained him while starting oral sex. When the employee resisted, he said that Lach shoved him and that his head hit a copying machine. Lach, who is in jail, could not be reached”.
“Study: Minority Faculty Marginalized at 2-Year Colleges”
“Minority faculty members at community colleges feel marginalized and "subordinated" to white faculty members, according to new research from the University of California at Riverside”.
Some things have more significance than you realize so please pay attention.
