A Libertarian Dilemma? This Is Easy

If you want to reform higher education, you'll enjoy the trans-blog conversation"The Libertarian's Dilemma" between Kevin Carey of The Quick and the Ed and Neal McCluskey of Cato@Liberty.

The issue is whether the nation should have federal regulations requiring transparency in universities, including evidence of student learning. Carey says yes; McCluskey, no. The debate was stirred up by an incisive Pope Center paper on the inner workings of higher ed. The paper's analysis is not in dispute; but what to do to change the incentives in higher ed has sparked this conversation as well as commentary on Phi Beta Cons.

(It's probably best to start with McCluskey's latest post to find the Carey-McCluskey links.)
