Education is the Path to Prosperity


With millions of Americans carrying a combined $1.5 trillion in student debt, we are long overdue for a higher ed revolution.  

The time has come to realign the incentives of a school, accreditor, and lender to the ultimate benefit of students and the U.S. taxpayer.

Accreditation reform, strong outcomes, and a return on education are keys to change. With our schools & Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR), this change is underway.
