Welcome to Paideia Times, gateway to the most important higher education news and events summary available. Our veteran researchers, writers, and editors will provide not only a quarterly email newsletter, but also a reference site, an archives, and further reading resources that provide valuable context for assessing these pressing topics.
We are launching Paideia Times now because we believe the American university system --- the best in the world, according to the Financial Times Higher Education World University Rankings (see here) – is facing unprecedented challenges to its preeminence.
The 50-year deterioration of America’s pre-college education system, first documented in 1983 with A Nation at Risk, is now impacting our colleges and universities. According to a 2010 study team lead by Benno Schmidt, former president of Yale University, “American colleges and universities that were regularly called ‘the envy of the world’ now draw withering admonitions from the White House and numerous others for their high costs and declining quality.”
