When you pour through the comments that folks have posted, it made me wonder if this challenge is asking the right questions. Often when we talk about Higher Education we talk about the system as it is, and how do we fix it or make it more affordable. Our world has fundamentally changed. Maybe some of the questions we should be asking are, how can employers create more effective ways to hire new employees than the classic degree system. How can potential employees prove that they have skills and knowledge without a traditional college degree? Why is the term "Educated" attached to degree status vs skills, knowledge and abilities? How do we make high school the new college?
What are some of the core questions and issues that need to be asked?
