Accountability in US Education: Applying Lessons from K–12 Experience to Higher Education

September 19, 2017

Abstract

The federal role in higher education has grown over the past two decades, and now a new administration has the opportunity to strengthen policies that support students and their colleges and universities. To help inform these decisions, the Urban Institute convened a bipartisan group of scholars and policy advisers to write a series of memos highlighting some of the most critical issues in higher education and recommending policy solutions. This memo suggests lessons higher education might learn from K-12 efforts and provides guidance for future efforts to build a college accountability system.
