Abstract: The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System is a web-based data collection system designed to collect basic data from all postsecondary institutions in the United States and the other jurisdictions.
IPEDS enables The National Center of Education Statistics to report on key dimensions of postsecondary education such as enrollments, degrees and other awards earned, tuition and fees, average net price, student financial aid, graduation rates, revenues and expenditures, faculty salaries, and staff employed.
The IPEDS web-based data collection system was implemented in 2000-01, and it collects basic data from approximately 7,500 postsecondary institutions in the United States and the other jurisdictions that are eligible to participate in title IV Federal financial aid programs.
All title IV institutions are required to respond to IPEDS. . . IPEDS allows other (non-title IV) institutions to participate on a voluntary basis. About 200 institutions elect to respond. IPEDS data are available to the public through the College Navigator and IPEDS Web sites. . . (The Federal Register)
Why is our Federal Government so concerned with the individuals who have successfully graduated and moved on to higher education?
In the past, these individuals were courted by higher learning institutes and awarded scholarships. A college scholarship was an incentive to do your best in high school.
In the past, the government was only concerned with educating children to an eighth grade level. Now it is only concerned with shoring up the profits of the “hedgehogs” through federal legislation and the collection of tax dollars from American citizens.
Our children are failing to succeed educationally at the elementary level of education.
Build On reports that “1.2 million students drop out of high school every year, many falling into a cycle of poverty, unemployment and violence.”
This proves that our current system of education creates the poverty, unemployment and violence that it supposed to amend.
When every child in America receives an excellent education colleges will pay to educate them like before.
