    Reagan National University (Reagan, really? Must be another Republican'ts invention.)

    This college was accredited by a DeVos-sanctioned group. We couldn’t find evidence of students or faculty.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ls/4746906002/

    Reagan National University was supposed to be a place of higher learning, but it was unclear how it awarded degrees. By all appearances, at present, it has no students, no faculty and no classrooms.

    An agency meant to serve as a gatekeeper for federal money gave the university approval to operate anyway.


    This screenshot from last month shows what used to be the homepage for Reagan National University, which listed its address in Sioux Falls, S.D. The web page prominently features the university's accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges & Schools. The site was taken down in the days before USA TODAY published this investigation.(Photo: RNU.EDU)

    Betsy DeVos orders probe after USA TODAY finds college evidently without faculty, students

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...sd/4891749002/

    The U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation after a USA TODAY report showed an accredited college apparently had no faculty or students.

    Reagan National University, the college investigated by USA TODAY, was approved by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges & Schools. It has a history of approving several for-profit universities that suddenly closed, such as ITT Tech and Corinthian Colleges in the mid-2010s. The accreditor still operates mainly because it was saved by the Education Department in 2018 under Secretary Betsy DeVos.

    Thursday, DeVos told a congressional committee she was "troubled" by USA TODAY's report and she launched an investigation as a result.


    "I was not happy to read that," DeVos said of the USA TODAY story. "We have an investigation launched, and we're on it."

    Parent demands partial tuition, room and board refunds in class-action lawsuit
    https://www.gwhatchet.com/2020/05/04/parent-demands-partial-tuition-room-and-board-refund-in-class-action-lawsuit/

    A parent is suing the University for a refund of tuition, fees and room and board payments for the spring semester in light of the switch to online classes.

    In a 22-page class-action complaint filed in the D.C. District Court Friday, Mark Shaffer – a parent of a female student – alleges the University breached its contract with students by not providing in-person education and campus facilities during the instructional continuity period. Shaffer is demanding the University provide a partial refund to his daughter and all other students who paid for “tuition, fees and/or room and board” in the spring semester.

    “Despite sending students home and closing its campuses, Defendant continues to charge for tuition and fees as if nothing has changed, continuing to reap the financial benefit of millions of dollars from students,” the complaint states.


    The plaintiff’s daughter has noticed a dropoff in “academic rigor” since the virtual learning period began, according to the lawsuit.

    The lawsuit states that the cancelation of student organization activities and suspension of access to “vital” library tools only available on campus have added to the University’s failure to provide services that students should expect to receive.


    The complaint states that the switch to online courses has led to “back loading of work” and delayed deadlines, increasing difficulty for students trying to communicate with faculty and staff.


    “While Plaintiff paid GW for an in-class experience that would enable his daughter to communicate directly with her professors, attend office hours and work through issues in person, such experiences are non-existent following Defendant’s campus closure,” the complaint states.


    The lawsuit alleges the University collected tuition payments from students and families despite understanding the payments were involuntary, “unjust and inequitable.”


    Nosal said officials have applied credit to students’ accounts for housing costs from March 20 to the end of the semester, which students can have refunded or apply for future housing. She added that students can request reimbursements for dining plan funds and parking permits for the number of days the virtual learning period lasts.


    She said officials have reimbursed students for international program fees and the cost of international travel.


    More than 2,000 students have signed an online petition posted in March demanding officials refund half of students’ tuition for online classes.


    The complaint comes amid a wave of student lawsuits
    filed against universities nationwide demanding spring semester refunds because of the pandemic’s effect on holding classes.

    As the Virus Deepens Financial Trouble, Colleges Turn to Layoffs
    https://news.yahoo.com/virus-deepens...153450180.html

    This month, the University of Texas at San Antonio laid off 69 instructors, while the University of Michigan, Flint, last month eliminated more than 40% of the 300 lecturers who handle a majority of the teaching load on campus. Since May, Ohio University has had three rounds of layoffs, including more than 50 nonunionized faculty members.

    Lucrative college sports have dwindled as a revenue stream as games have been canceled, and colleges have lost money they usually make from dining halls, campus bookstores and room-and-board payments, which were refunded by many schools in the spring. Many students have also demanded tuition rebates, as face time with professors and the experience of campus life have been replaced by remote instruction from home.

    One day she notices something curious about one of her young pupils. Yoav (Avi Schnaidman), a boy with ragamuffin’s hair but a somewhat weary, pained look on his face, will sometimes begin pacing back and forth. “I have a poem,” he’ll announce, and then burst with non-rhyming verse of a vocabulary and syntax well beyond his years.

    Australian universities warn of economic ripple effect if international students remain locked out
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...ain-locked-out

    Multiple universities told Guardian Australia that the continued shut-out of international students would harm the Australian economy, as well as universities’ future research capacity.

    Earlier this month, universities said they hoped international students could return to class by the second half of 2021.

    On Friday, the deputy vice-chancellor (international) of the University of Technology Sydney, Iain Watt, said Australian society as a whole “will be poorer for the absence of international students”.

    “While the impacts of delays will be significant on UTS and the higher education sector, the impacts on the wider Australian economy – in retail, hospitality – will be much larger,” he said.

    The Columbia University student strike is about far more than tuition
    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...e-than-tuition

    Student organizers claim that more than 1,100 students are now actively refusing to pay tuition until their demands are met. YDSA’s Twitter account also claims the administration has retaliated against striking students by charging them over $157,000 in late fees.

    Rather than waiting around for the adults in the room to relieve us of our student debt burden – something the Biden administration can do with the stroke of a pen – Columbia-Barnard YDSA is charting a course of action that equips students to take matters into their own hands.

    Organizers are aiming to spark a nationwide wave of student strikes and say they have been in contact with seven universities that plan on striking next fall. Even so, there is no guarantee that this will solve the problem of tuition inflation, which has rising at over twice the rate of inflation for some 40 years now.

    Meatless school menu sparks political row in France
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-row-in-france

    A decision by the Green mayor of Lyon, seen by many as the country’s culinary capital, to temporarily take meat off the menu in school canteens during the coronavirus pandemic has sparked a major political row in France.

    Government ministers have accused the mayor, Grégory Doucet, of “ideological” and “elitist” behaviour after the measure, which is also being studied by several other cities including Paris, came into force in Lyon’s schools on Monday.

    The city council has said the decision to provide the same meatless four-course lunch was purely practical, saying physical distancing rules necessitated more sittings in school canteens and it could not serve 29,000 children in two hours if there was a choice of meat and vegetarian menus.

    Food represents roughly a quarter of France’s carbon footprint and proposals are being developed by the government to encourage the French both to eat more local produce and to consume less meat, but of higher quality. The French senate last year recommended a more vegetable-based diet, but mainly to counter the unhealthy impact of fast food and takeaways. There have also been proposals to reward low-emission meat producers.

    But resistance to any proposals to reduce meat consumption will be fierce from France’s powerful farming lobby. The Lyon decision was met with protest in the form of tractors, cows and goats paraded in front of the city hall. Banners proclaimed: “Meat from our fields = a healthy child” and “Stopping meat is a guarantee of weakness against future viruses”.

    The Lyon city council has promised canteens will offer a meat option again as soon as restrictions are relaxed and pupils have more time to eat, also pointing out that the temporary menus are not vegetarian, but contain fish and eggs, and that the previous rightwing mayor, Gérard Collomb, took the same step during the first Covid-19 wave last spring.

    Doucet has said he eats meat and denied he was trying to force vegetarianism on to the city’s children. “Being able to offer a seated hot meal to all the children is important,” he told French television. “This is Lyon, the capital of gastronomy. For us, flavour is also essential.”

    But that has not stopped some ministers from France’s centrist government jumping on the decision. “This is absurd from a nutritional point of view, and a scandal from a social point of view,” the agriculture minister, Julien Denormandie, told French radio.

    “Let’s stop putting ideology on our children’s plates,” Denormandie said on Twitter. “Let’s just give them what they need to grow well. Meat is part of it.” He said he had asked the region’s prefect, the state-appointed top local official, to overrule the move.

    The conservative interior minister, Gérald Darmanin, also took aim at what he called the “scandalous ideology” of the Lyon city council, describing the decision as “an unacceptable insult to France’s farmers and butchers”.

    Darmanin said on Twitter that it was “clear that the Greens’ moralising and elitist policies excluded low-income people. For many children, the school canteen is the only place where they get to eat meat”.

    In a rare display of disagreement within the cabinet, however, the environment minister, Barbara Pompili, said on a visit to a school canteen on Monday that schools should offer a daily vegetarian menu option and called the Lyon debate “prehistoric”.

    Pompili said that while many people assumed “children from less privileged backgrounds eat less meat, research shows the opposite”. The health minister, Olivier Véran, also said he did not find a menu with neither meat nor fish shocking.

    Doucet is one of a number of Green politicians to win control of major French cities in local elections last year, in a defeat for Macron’s party that partly reflected growing concerns about the environmental damage from intensive farming and other green issues.
    Holy cow!!
