House approves college transparency act

From Inside Higher Ed: “Under the College Transparency Act, colleges would be required to collect and submit data to the Department of Education regarding student enrollment, persistence, transfer and completion measures for all programs and degree levels. The data would also be disaggregated by demographics, including race and ethnicity, gender, and age.

The result would be much more information about how colleges perform at educating students.”
