"Guide for State Lawmakers on College Success"

NFA lobbyist Jim Richardson calls our attention to this newly published report, which is not an AAUP or NFA document (and which we confess to not yet having read). But it seems timely to discuss what approach the state legislature ought to take to addressing our state's investment in higher education.

Legislators in some states have taken aggressive steps to improve college success -- and the National Conference of State Legislators is drawing attention to their efforts in order to inspire and inform their peers elsewhere. "The Path to a Degree: A Legislator's Guide to College Access and Success," a new report from the group, contains a series of briefs on specific issues, such as financial aid policies, work force readiness, and college success.
