    [What's] closest to my heart is what we achieved in education, particularly school education, but not just that, we brought a revolution to early childhood education, to Australian universities. There are more kids having apprenticeships in Australia and getting a chance in life than ever before in our history.

    President Obama has seized on simmering public discontent with higher education by calling for a range of policies aimed at college affordability, including better information for prospective students, tying federal financial aid dollars to student success, and promoting innovative uses of technology. These are laudable goals, but they largely ignore the most central part of students’ college experiences: the instruction that goes on in college classrooms and the people responsible for delivering it.

Today, of the 57 million children of primary school-age not in school, 53 percent are girls. It’s still more than 50 percent, but that number is closing.

    We’ve been telling... students and their families for years that college is the only way to succeed in the economy these days and of course there’s a lot of truth to that. On average it does pay off... But if you load up on a whole lot of student debt and then you don’t graduate, that is a very bad situation.
