Stuart Butler of the Brookings Institutions has some bold predictions for changes to higher education in coming years. He bases his predictions on signs that have become more evident in recent years, but as of yet have not significantly disturbed the four-year college education establishment.
His 4 key predictions are:
- Tuition will begin to fall sharply.
- Quality information will get much better and become customized.
- MOOCs will become more sophisticated and pervasive.
- The traditional four-year college will give way to other business models.
Essentially, Butler thinks that education will face the same sort of changes that technological innovation has caused in other fields. And for those frantically saving money for their future college education, his predictions will be music to their ears.
