Lessons from America?

  • 28 February 2011
  • By Professor Roger Brown

In his report produced for HEPI, Professor Roger Brown considers recent developments in higher education in the USA.  He concludes that recent developments mirror those in healthcare, and that if the government does not take action to hold down spiralling costs, the US higher education system will come to resemble the US healthcare system in being both unduly expensive and inefficient as well as grossly unfair.

This paper formed the basis for a seminar held on 24th February 2011 in the British Academy, sponsored by Elsevier and the Times Higher Education, at which Professor Brown presented his paper, and Dr Jamil Salmi, Tertiary Education co-ordinator at the World Bank responded.
