Learning for ALL Students

In response to this article in USA Today, "NSSE changes how colleges judge success, weakness," Priscilla Gutierrez has this to say:

"How ironic that the five keys to learning identified as critical to college-level learning (i.e. academic challenge, active/collaborative learning, student/faculty interaction, enriching experiences, and a supportive environment) are the very same keys to learning for ALL students.

The irony is that Arne Duncan and the Department of Ed don't seem interested in how students actually learn. Rather they are only interested in the pseudo-accountability of what looks good on paper."
