Legislation Would Better Inform Future Virginia College Students

Virginia Senator Mark Warner is among those proposing the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act on Capitol Hill. 
He says the state has top notch community colleges and universities, but good information is not always available. The change would require information be public on how one degree choice compares to another in the workforce, how landing employment with a bachelor's degree versus a masters differs and each school's graduation rates. Though the data is collected now, it is often not compiled to be compared against other schools or performance of other states. If the legislation passes, it would direct the Secretary of Education to require schools put it in an easy to understand and use format and make it accessible on-line.
