ACTA Testifies Before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

May 29, 2015 by Anne D. Neal

ACTA has repeatedly documented that the system of higher education accreditation is a barrier to innovation, improvement, and accountability at colleges and universities. On May 29, ACTA President Anne D. Neal demonstrated to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that the inadequacy of accreditation has been particularly harmful to socio-economically disadvantaged students. Joining Anne Neal on the panel were Neal McCluskey from the Cato Institute, Ronald Haskins from the Brookings Institution, and Michele Siqueiros representing the Campaign for College Opportunity
