The intersection of technology, research, financial aid and student access in higher education

When you agree 80%, this might not show up in the fall debates →

Scott Fleming, a Romney education adviser:

“Nobody is saying we shouldn’t have an emphasis on college access, on college success,” Fleming said, estimating that the campaigns agree on “80 percent” of higher education issues. “Nobody is saying that we shouldn’t find a way to get more students through the door. Those are principles we all agree on.”

And the differences:

“The role needs to be less focused on checking boxes and implementing regulations, and more on the core of improving access and affordability,” said Fleming, whose criticism of increased regulation under the Obama administration drew applause from the audience of financial aid administrators.

Good summary of the talking points of both campaigns and gives some perspective on where finanical aid, politically, will be headed over the next four- to five-years.
