How To Kickstart Creative Problem Solving

How To Kickstart Creative Problem SolvingDespite our best intentions, most of us are already back in a rut just a few weeks after the New Year, having quickly thrown in the towel on reaching our lofty resolutions and being the very best versions of ourselves. We tend to blame lack of willpower, while not realizing our full potential may have more to do with our failure to address waning creativity. If you’re able to come up with better and faster solutions to problems, this can do as much – or more – to put your desired outcome within reach than sheer grit and determination. In particular, many will find it more rewarding to achieve success by tapping into their creative side rather than burning the midnight oil desperately seeking a remedy to their business or personal dilemma.  H...

Six Big Problems With Education Savings Accounts

Six Big Problems With Education Savings Accounts

Six Big Problems With Education Savings AccountsEducation Savings Accounts are enjoying a sudden start-of-year legislative push in many states. ESAs (sometimes more accurately called education scholarship accounts) are a version of school vouchers; they are often these days teamed up with tax credit scholarships, a program that allows contributions from individuals or organizations, with donors reimbursed by the state in the form of tax credits. The ESA funds are then given to parents to spend on various education products and services. To be fully wonkily accurate, tax credit scholarships are the funding side, and ESAs are about dispersing the funds. They don’t have to be married, but these days, they commonly are. (ESAs can be funded directly by the state, but church-state considerations...

Should College Application Be Required For A High School Diploma?

Should College Application Be Required For A High School Diploma?

Should College Application Be Required For A High School Diploma?The Wall Street Journal last week reported legislators in a growing number of states are trying to get new laws requiring high school seniors to complete applications for college financial aid (mainly the federal FAFSA —Free Application for Student Aid— but also sometimes state forms) before receiving a high school diploma. It is already law in Louisiana. Nebraska legislation was vetoed by Governor Pete Ricketts. The argument for such legislation is: a college degree will be needed for most jobs created in coming years, and college graduates are more productive citizens, so increasing higher education participation should stimulate economic growth. Moreover, underrepresented groups in college attendance, such as minorities a...

Why We Need A National Strategy For Attracting International Students

Why We Need A National Strategy For Attracting International StudentsFor five consecutive years, the number of new international students enrolling at U.S. colleges and universities has declined. Understandably, the number of new international students dropped precipitously this year as the pandemic created new hurdles preventing international students from studying in the United States. Yet the multi-year decline is the result of other longer-term barriers that can discourage international students from studying here. Worse, these barriers come against the backdrop of several other countries’ making a concerted effort to tap into the global talent pool and recruit top talent away from us. With a new administration in Washington that understands the value of international students and emb...
