College students predicted to fall by more than 15% after the year 2025 - The Hechinger... - 0 views

    ""Students are going to be a hot commodity, a scarce resource," said Grawe. "It's going to be harder during this period for institutions to aggressively increase tuition. It may be a time period when it's a little easier on parents and students who are negotiating over the financial aid package.""

American higher education enrollment declined. Again. - 0 views

  •  
    "Compare: 17,839,330 took classes this spring, while in 2013 we enrolled 19,105,651 students.  That's about a 6.7% decline.  And it comes after a generation of steady enrollment growth. Consider how much planning American institutions have done, predicated on those decades of rising numbers.  Think of how many expectations and habits were instilled then, and which are now obsolete."

    "For those who can crack the top 20 percent, there is great promise. Most people in that elite group, Rank told me, will spend at least part of their careers among the truly affluent, earning more than $250,000 a year. For those at work in the much larger pool, there will be falling or stagnant wages and far greater uncertainty. A college degree is an advantage, but it no longer offers any guarantee, especially for those who graduate from lower-ranked for-profit schools."

    "But from 1960 to 2060, our pyramid will turn into a rectangle. We'll have almost as many Americans over age 85 as under age 5. This is the result of longer life spans and lower birthrates. It's uncharted territory, not just for us, but for all of humanity. And while it's certainly good news over the long haul for the sustainability of the earth's resources, it will create political and economic stress in the shorter term, as smaller cohorts of working age adults will be hard-pressed to finance the retirements of larger cohorts of older ones."

WICHE report highlights decline in high school graduates and growing diversity - 0 views

  •  
    "After about two decades of steady growth in the number of graduates, the country likely peaked at about 3.4 million graduates in 2011 and will see a modest decline over the next few years, according to a report released Thursday by the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education. According to the report, the number of graduates will fall in the immediate term, settle at about 3.3 million graduates a year by 2014 and begin to grow gradually starting in 2020, but at nowhere near the rate seen from 1990 to 2011."
