Questioning whether degrees are oversold can be easy, but cracking the foundation of college is only part of reform. We need more narratives of alternatives to the traditional college options that appears to be the only option for many.
With that in mind, on the Center for College Affordability and Productivity blog, Richard Vedder provides examples of four schools with innovative methods to make college more efficient and effective.
These schools do more than offer an innovative course or two — they shift the paradigm for higher education. While each school is not perfect, it’s hard to deny that these four schools are selling iPods, while many traditional colleges are trying to redesign cassette players.
