Re: For Public Feedback: A College Ratings Framework

Dear Sir or Madam:

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback on the College Ratings Framework as published on December 19, 2014. As a non-profit research and advocacy organization working toward expanding economic opportunity for young adults, we applaud the Department of Education’s (hereafter “the Department”) work to make institutions of higher learning more accountable to students and families, better able to improve, and more transparent for taxpayers.

We understand and appreciate the difficulty of achieving an ambitious project such as the one that the Department lays out in its framework. Systems within higher education are extremely complex, often to the detriment of students and families. How the Department will assign value to its activities and outcomes speaks to our values and priorities as a nation. We hope that our comments are beneficial to your work and will result in a usable system that benefits students and families, with an emphasis on students from underrepresented communities.
