Interesting article about reverse transfers. The interviewee is trying to make the point about how important a bachelors is, at the same time saying that unless you get through all four years then there is allot of work and no return. To get a credential to increase employability, the reverse transfer to Associates and community college is the solution to leverage the work they already have done.
What I’m reading into it is that students are starting to feel what I see every day… that the Bachelor’s is expensive, time consuming, overly common, and doesn’t look attractive to employers, but a good technical credential from a community college does.
methinks someone needs to spray some on that ivy.
