When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, “I’m not familiar with it, actually.”

Here we go, as predicted here at JOM:

WSJ:"President Barack Obama on Thursday will announce proposals aimed at combating rising college costs by creating a new ratings system and eventually tying federal student aid to institutions’ performance.

The president will call for rating colleges before the 2015 school year and identifying those that are doing the most to help disadvantaged students. Once that system is in place, Mr. Obama will ask Congress to allocate financial aid based on those ratings by 2018.

Under the plan, which is expected to spur pushback and concern among some colleges, colleges would be rated on measures such as affordability and outcomes, including graduation and transfer rates. Students at top-performing colleges could receive larger federal grants and more affordable student loans.

Mr. Obama also will urge innovation in higher education, encouraging colleges to pursue ideas including three-year accelerated degrees and massive open online courses. The president will return to some familiar ideas as well, calling for an expansion of his pay-as-you-earn program that caps student loan payments at 10% of monthly income and re-upping his funding requests for the Race to the Top program, which is focused on state higher education reforms."

Matters not, the Dem politicians will crush the Colleges because their Medicaid/SNAP/Obummerphone constituents far outnumber college administrator votes. NEXT STEP-- Dem Blue Hells TAXING their nonprofits. Buy popcorn.

And so we now have a federal bureau of universities.
The old canard that welfare statists are not socialists is only true to the extent that they are worse than real socialists.

They have precisely the same desire to steal other's liberty and coerce their fellow citizens to live as they believe they should, they just lack the courage to do it openly.
Therefore rather than own the means of production they seek to act as parasites and puppet masters of other's property and lives through crushing regulations and a mind numbing web of laws.

Give me a revolutionary socialist any day of the week; their goals are the same but at least with a socialist they don't pretend as though you have to like the castor oil they're forcing you to swallow.

"that caps student loan payments at 10% of monthly income"

So BOzo's gonna weld that titanium serf's collar on Ms Julia Lackwitz's neck? She's using the French Lit degree she borrowed $125K to obtain to hold down a $28K assistant manager position at Starbucks and interest on her student loan is running $5K per annum.

Oh well. At least her birth control is free.

Thanks, Pagar, I did see it and I think you are right to want to help. I don't think anything I can do will add to the weight of the WaPo and VFW though.

colleges would be rated on measures such as affordability and outcomes, including graduation and transfer rates. Students at top-performing colleges could receive larger federal grants and more affordable student loans.

I'm not at all opposed to tying Federal student aid programs to performance. But obviously if Zero is proposing it, there's got to something awful baked right into the proposal.

...as in the above paragraph. If affordability is one of the criteria used for ranking, then this new program will be funneling more federal aid money to the schools that are the most affordable already; in other words, to the schools whose students would LEAST need that aid.

Am I missing something there?

And of course, since it's the massive infusion of "free" federal student loan money that has pushed up the rising tuition-rate spiral, pumping ever more money into those "affordable" schools will inevitably push costs up, making them less affordable over time. Which is exactly the opposite of what this proposal is presumably meant to do.

'Titanium serf collar' heh--

Listen, Obummer is merely giving the Leftist response (price controls) to a situation that will have to change -one way or the other. The last 30years of 7-8% year -on-year College Tuition and fee increases can't continue, and it won't. The past 5 years with the impoverishing of Americans, the Colleges have turned to the Dems to pay for these increases with Pell Grants, Sallie Mae loans etc. So the Colleges have given Obummer the leverage to dictate to 'the deal' to them. The Elite Colleges (Top 150-200) will respond by cutting administrators and CapEx expenditures, then ending tenure/pensions, and finally when the fed yoke gets too tight they'll drop Fed asssisted students entirely, and go with Chinese/Russian/Arab cash paying students, and more of an On-Line model. Things will change-- maybe not the way Obummer wants... but they will change.

Question about l'affaire Manning...

Has anyone other than Manning been punished, or reprimanded, or lost their job, or been chastised in any way, for deliberately designing a system where an emotionally disturbed 20-year-old was given unfettered access to the entire secret diplomatic correspondence of the State Department?

And have any changes been made so that such a thing can't happen again?

I'm just wondering...

If Cruz is going to run for president, I think he would be wise to renounce his Canadian citizenship. I know of no existing law that requires him to do so, but if he doesn't there are a number of questions that would be raised that certainly won't help his electoral chances.

James D-it's called the Lumina Diploma Qualifications Profile and it was laid out in a January 2012 shindig at the WH. This aligns us with the UN Bologna Process that insists credentials must be equitably awarded across population groups so that life circumstances do not impact achievement.

You get the revolution from the unsatisfiable expectations that occur when you divorce credentials from genuine knowledge while supplying propaganda and a sense of entitlement.

I'm not at all opposed to tying Federal student aid programs to performance.

Of course the real problem is that there is any Federal program at all, never mind the fact that they have taken over the program in its entirety. But given that, it would make more sense to tie aid to the field of study than to the school. No aid for gender studies or comparative lit majors, generous aid for engineering and the hard sciences.

The hole I see beyond what I think of all these so-called reforms generally is to base the rating in part on what grads earn. That would seem to me to further cement the workforce development alliance being deliberately created as the government/higher ed/ Big Business Corporatist nexus which nurtures a stagnant economy as it treats the current large employers as the always employers.

Thanks Clarice, I haven't gotten the VFW National organization on board yet. In fact, no one on JOM besides you has mentioned the Gina Grey mistreatment yet that I have seen. I' just thinking that any mention of the story any where might get a few more people on board. Can't imagine that many Americans really believe it doesn't matter that some of our American Heroes at our most revered cemetery were in the wrong graves. Can't believe that many Americans really believe that the Administrators of that cemetery would have came forward with out the efforts of Gina Gray and volunteered that they had dishonored the memories of so many veterans.

Shoot me an email at jamesd at elevendayempire dot com and I'll send you the link to download it (it's a huge file, so make sure you have a decent connection if you want it).

I'm pretty sure I can trust everyone here not to run out and share it on some pirate file-sharing site :)
