Sander, Libby – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2013
About 16 percent of veterans use the GI Bill to attend private institutions, roughly the same proportion as students generally.

Actions in Washington this month highlight how far from settled the question is,…

Fuller, Andrea – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
When colleges look to compare themselves with others, they are not much different from high-school students chasing popularity: Everyone wants to be friends with the Ivy League, but the Ivy League is really picky about whom it hangs out with. Each year colleges submit "comparison groups" to the U.S. Department of Education to get…

Schmidt, Peter – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012

Labi, Aisha – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
As Europe has lurched from one economic crisis to another in recent months, one thing has become clear: Any long-term solution will depend on the willingness of Germany, Europe's largest economy, to shoulder much of the financial burden the debt crisis has created. German taxpayers, known for their thrift, have balked at underwriting what many see…
