Key Points

  • In light of current conversations about reauthorizing the Higher Education Act, the American Enterprise Institute and Third Way recently gathered a small, bipartisan group of experts to seek common ground and clarify areas of principled agreement and disagreement about what Washington should do to improve higher education accountability.
  • These discussions uncovered several points of agreement, including concerns about inadequate transparency around higher education outcomes, high levels of non-completion, and the fact that higher education is, despite some perceptions, far from a free market.
  • Areas of disagreement included how to address market failures in higher education, with Democrats voicing a preference for the federal government playing a more robust consumer protection role and Republicans expressing skepticism that the federal government could craft policy to incentivize positive institutional responses without creating perverse incentives.
