College must become more accessible and affordable–so here’s a start - Anant Agarwal and Michael Crow, Quartz

It might be difficult to believe that by 2020, the U.S. alone will be three million college graduates short of what projections say the economy will need. By 2025, that number could skyrocket to 16 million. Making college exclusive and expensive is not the answer the global economy needs, but that’s the trend in current budget climates. It doesn’t have to be this way. Some schools, prestigious universities included, have been making strides in quality online education. This commitment to more inclusion and access should be applauded.
