Politicians: Let’s hold someone accountable
Here’s where I get to laugh at the usual circus. Politicians deciding they need to hold some other industry “accountable”:
U.S. and state officials are intensifying efforts to hold colleges accountable for what happens after graduation, a sign of frustration with sky-high tuition costs and student-loan debt.
Sens. Ron Wyden (D., Ore.) and Marco Rubio> (R., Fla.) are expected to reintroduce this week legislation that would require states to make more accessible the average salaries of colleges’ graduates. The figures could help prospective students compare salaries by college and major to assess the best return on their investment.
While I agree that colleges do not offer a good return on investment at the moment, since when is it up to politicians to hold them “accountable”.
And how would the politicians fare if the same standards were applied to them?
