National faculty group reaffirms commitment to defend public higher education, urges rejection of Betsy DeVos as Ed Secretary
News Release

As the Trump administration wages its war on science, on the free flow of people and information that is at the core of higher education and democracy, and as it propagates clear untruths as “alternative facts” about publicly, empirically verifiable phenomena, the Campaign for the Future of Higher Education (CFHE) recommits to defending and advancing affordable, quality public higher education for all who pursue it, and joins thousands of educators, organizations, and critics from various political persuasions to denounce and oppose the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.

Working paper highlighted on Huffington Post

Making public higher education free – and a CFHE working paper that examines the idea – was highlighted recently in a column featured on The Huffington Post.

The piece takes a look at the student loan debt crisis, and details research by Bob Samuels, lecturer at UCLA and President of University of California’s American Federation of Teachers, which was included in the working paper “Making All Public Higher Education Free.”

CFHE paper on costs of higher ed featured on Huffington Post

CFHE’s working paper “The Promises of Online Higher Education: Reducing Costs” recently was the focus of an article on the Huffington Post.

One of the most widely touted claims in the conversation surrounding online higher education is that it will save students, universities and taxpayers big money.

But what the chatter lacks is the real bottom line — that the true costs can often amount to more, not less, costs for all involved.
