A Model for Improving Higher Education: The Colorado Example

January 2004 by ACTA

In 2004, Colorado—a state with which ACTA has worked for a decade—announced new accountability standards that adopted, across the board, higher ed reforms for which ACTA has campaigned: more streamlined and rigorous core curricula, better prepared K-12 teachers, methods to assess student knowledge, and limited tuition and fee increases. Building on this model of success, ACTA published this brochure, outlining how other states can undertake similar positive higher education reforms.
