U.S. Plans Accreditation Actions - Michael Stratford, Inside Higher Ed

The Obama administration is planning new executive action on higher education accreditation in the coming weeks, as part of a push to make accreditors focus more heavily on student outcomes when judging colleges and universities, officials said Monday. The executive action will be part of a package of proposals aimed at reforming an accreditation system that the administration believes is green-lighting too many poor-performing colleges and universities.“Accreditors need to do more and need to focus on outcomes,” Under Secretary of Education Ted Mitchell told reporters Monday. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/10/20/obama-administration-plans-executive-action-higher-education-accreditation
