Illinois Fails ACTA Report Card

Ashley Thorne

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni has released a report card on public higher education in the state of Illinois. According to the ACTA press release:

The report card, entitled For the People, surveys 10 public four-year universities that together educate more than 90 percent of students enrolled at such institutions in Illinois. It offers a Pass or Fail grade in four key areas: what a college education costs, how the universities are governed, what students are learning and whether the marketplace of ideas is vibrant.

The institutions, as it happened, failed ACTA's standards in all four areas. Download the 66-page For the People report Download the 2-page executive summary
