Obama Proposes New System For Rating Colleges
At the State University of New York’s Buffalo campus today, President Barack Obama outlined a plan to make colleges more affordable and more accountable.
His proposal includes a new system for rating colleges based on a series of factors, including affordability, graduation rate and the average earnings of graduates.
Today is the latest leg of the president’s economy tour — this time by bus — and the speech today is the first in a series about education.
