So first he nationalized the student loan system and now he is going to muscle colleges into taking more students who receive pell grants and other programs that he has his own socio-political reasons to support.

“Department of Education”

Of all the useless departments staffed with idiots, this one takes the cake.

Oh, forgot about the Just-Us department.

Sorry.

Both pay-to-play (i.e. cut a check to OFA if you want us to rate you highly)

student/faculty race and sexual preferences and the racial makeup of students who “graduate” will have NO effect on govt funding

(sarc)

this shouldn’t phase the big universities, they have been obsequious affirmative action toe suckers for almost 3 generations now

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

FedGov ratings are just another lever of extortion for the Chicago bolshevik mob.

I see the infancy of the Department of Integration and Social Disorder forming right under our feet. Calling Sheila Jackson Lee (when that elusive DHS position falls through)

By doing this isn’t he conceding that No Child Left Behind is a success? In face of opposition by his union buddies? Wouldn’t colleges just ‘teach’ and ‘administer’ to the new criteria? Maximize aid by making sure their students get employed?

And wouldn’t a direct outcome of this be that the Ivy’s, which are able through their alumni networks to place their graduates easier, end up with more subsidies while the smaller liberal arts colleges that prepare students for graduate schools get screwed?

More government is always the Marxist answer. It's always the rock-solid wrong answer, of course, but they wouldn't be Marxists if they could accept facts at face value.

Because there are no great challenges facing the United States at this time, Great Leader pokes his nose in an area that doesn’t usually receive a federal nose-poking. Thank you, Oh Great Leader! May your government and domain ever swell and may the cost, to thee, of thine own nose-poking, remain immaterial.

The ranks of Amsoc’s Inner Party must be filled with properly indoctrinated cadre.

Hey kollege kids!
Back to school with you and work hard: your Wookie is already planning her next vacay in Shangrila. Menu: Toasted hummingbird tongues. Unicorn fillets. Creme de Drank. Flaming Skittles Jubilee.
How was your summer staycation? Sucked, huh? This is why you gotta be careful what you wish for: Thanks to you pinheads we all got it.
Good and hard.

I am of the opinion that the only areas that Government “needs” to be involved in education is to decide for the Federal government (for hiring purposes), what constitutes a high school diploma and a college degree.

The only area that they MAY get involved in would be the establishment of a system for transferring credits across state lines (interstate commerce), but which is really unnecessary.

Students attending higher-performing colleges could receive larger Pell Grants and more affordable student loans, the White House said.

Which, as we know, will make the higher-performing schools far more expensive. So the "affordable" schools will be the poorer performers. What kind of thumb on the scale will save the historically black colleges?
