Education sans Improvement?

In a brief article covering three things that colleges don’t want us to know, Richard Vedder notes that it is impossible to determine from data directly provided by the institutions how much smarter students are after being fired in the crucible of higher learning.

His thinking is that the government should force schools to make that information known. My thinking is that parents and students should simply not do businsess with institutions which cannot show a measurable improvement for the tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars which a degree requires.

I’ve a feeling no government pressure would be required.
