Summary

#EdValue

On average, public colleges cost $13k/yr for tuition, room, and board. A 2012 Pew Research Center Survey said Americans don't think students get enough value for the money they pay for college. Declarations by leaders in TX & FL about the need for “$10,000 Degrees” have gained the attention of those seeking a solution. This panel will consider the demand for $10k Degrees, their characteristics and how the cost/time imperative will play out in new waves of innovation in higher education reform.
