Bernard Letter to The Times on Obama's College Plan

"As a teacher, I believe fervently that the benefits of an education go beyond that of job placement," writes College of Arts and Sciences Associate Professor Cathy Bernard in a response to news about President Barack Obama's plan to link federal aid to a ranking system and provide ratings related to college costs. "But shamefully overpriced tuition costs and the precarious nature of the current job market force one to reconsider. With Mr. Obama's plan, students and parents would get a far more realistic sense of what might await them after four years of crippling expenses."
