Debate Under Duress in California

Original Article

Summary goes here!
Well. People seem to have trouble understand the root of the problem. With no standard to start with, there is no way people is going to agree on the standard.

If WASC accredited schools can't show how well they hold their standard, how will you be able to judging the quality of the private? The Stanford's objection is odd, I can only think this is just self-protectionism. It wanted to be treated the same just like any other WASC institutions. Un-fortunately, without objective standard, even WASC accredited school are not and should not be treated equal.

If people can agree that the single standard needed is the outcome of students' learning, the whole issue will reduced to one issue, even though that issue is still a big issue.
