This morning, while reading the Sunday Times education section I was left with dire conclusions about the current state of our 4 year public/private College level delivery model, excluding recent improvements to Community and 2-year college programs (financial aid and quality). My spirits then were buoyed by reading an Opinion and analysis article by Harold O. Levy, How to Level the College Playing Field. A qualified voice on the subject would be difficult to find (graduate of NYC schools, undergrad and Law Degrees from Cornell University, Chancellor of NYC public schools from 2000) so I read the article with interest and enthusiasm. Please take a Sunday moment to read it yourself.
Great books on the subject of the current University experience:
