Education Nation: “A Matter of Degrees: Measuring the Value of Higher Ed”
This week, Complete College America President Stan Jones was part of a four-person panel moderated by NBC's Andrea Mitchell at the 2011 Education Nation Summit in New York. The panel discussed Complete College America's new report, "Time is the Enemy," which provides – for the first time ever – a comprehensive picture of today’s college student, the challenges students face and the reasons why they are not completing their degrees and certificates.
The report includes self-reported data from 33 states on both full-time and part-time students at public colleges and universities. The federal government currently requires colleges and universities to track first-time, full-time students, but 40 percent of students today attend part-time.
Watch video of the discussion and let us know what you think about our groundbreaking new report.
