  1. Great podcast. Interesting discussion about policy implications and complications with “unbundled” higher education alternatives, but too are there great complications with both the “business” of public higher education and the public/private business sector vested in maintaining status quo. “Unbundling” will lead us to recognize the market-driven competencies, as we strive to do at Ancora Education, necessary to meet the every changing needs of our communities and community members, and require higher education and the business sector to partner in new, unique, and effective ways to determine what these competencies are. Excellent point of the podcast — this should not be viewed as threatening to the value of traditional liberal arts education, but rather can highlight its importance in the development and growth of all of us – when tied to measurable expected outcomes.
