ANS-Online kijkt in het weekend over ’s lands grenzen en brengt je buitenlands studentennieuws. Deze week: Stijgende studieschulden. Afgelopen zomer bereikte ons het bericht dat in de Verenigde Staten de studieschulden zo langzamerhand de pan uit rijzen. De schulden van alle Amerikaanse studenten zijn sinds 2008 met ruim 25% gestegen naar een recordbedrag van 550 miljard dollar. Daarmee is het leenbedrag van studenten voor het eerst hoger dan het bedrag dat door middel van creditcard wordt geleend. Economen maken zich vooral zorgen over het ontstaan van een bubbel, aangezien studenten lenen om het onderwijs te kunnen betalen en de kans op een baan na een studie steeds kleiner wordt.

Ondertussen in de Verenigde Staten 5 Ondertussen in de Verenigde Staten 5 Eind augustus berichtten we al over de extreem hoge schulden van studenten in de Verenigde Staten. Het schuldenbedrag van studenten is hoger dan het totale bedrag aan creditcardleningen en economen vrezen voor een nieuwe bubbel. Ook bij de Occupybeweging op Wall Street zitten veel studenten die na hun studie te kampen hebben met een torenhoge schuld, maar geen baan kunnen vinden.
Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies, with voluntary accreditation available through independent regional accreditation authorities. 88% of school-age children attend public schools, 9% attend private schools, and nearly 3% are homeschooled.[5] There are also a large number and wide variety of publicly and privately administered institutions of higher education throughout the country. Post-secondary education, divided into college, as the first tertiary degree, and graduate school, is described in a separate section below. History[edit] In 1823, Reverend Samuel Read Hall founded the first normal school, the Columbian School in Concord, Vermont,[7][8] to improve the quality of the burgeoning common school system by producing more qualified teachers.

K–12 (education) K–12 (education) K–12 (spoken as "k twelve", "k through twelve", or "k to twelve") is a designation for the sum of primary and secondary education. It is used in the United States, Canada, Turkey, the Philippines, and Australia. P–12 is also occasionally used in Australia.[1] The expression is a shortening of kindergarten (K) for 4- to 6-year-olds through twelfth grade (12) for 17- to 19-year-olds, the first and last grades of free education in these countries, respectively. The Term is often used in school website URLs, generally appearing before the country code top-level domain (or in the United States, the state top-level domain). The term "PK–12" is sometimes used to add pre-kindergarten. It is also used by American multinationals selling into the educational sector, such as Dell where UK customers are presented with this as a market segment choice.[2]
Pell Grant The Pell Grant is covered by legislation titled the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), Title IV, Part A, Subpart 1; 20 U.S.C. 1070a. These federal funded grants are not like loans, and need not be repaid. Students may use their grants at any one of approximately 5,400 participating postsecondary institutions. These federally funded grants help about 5.4 million full-time and part-time college and vocational school students nationally.[4] For the 2010–2011 school year, 7 of the top 10 colleges by total Pell Grant money awarded were for-profit institutions.[5] Pell Grant

President Barack Obama pledged support to reestablish America as the global leader in higher education in his State of the Union address last night. The president decried higher education budget cuts, which have become all the more common as states try to balance their coffers. "Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine," he said. "It may feel like you're flying high at first, but it won't take long before you'll feel the impact." Education would not be included in the five-year spending freeze he outlined before Congress.

The anti-seniority advertisement from Education Reform Now, which backs the mayor’s agenda…. When Cathleen P. Black, the schools chancellor, testified before the State Legislature on Tuesday about what she called the unavoidable teacher layoffs in New York City that would take place if the governor’s proposed education budget were approved, a line from her remarks might have rung familiar to regular watchers of television ads. “The answer is obvious: Keep the most effective teachers, whether they have been in the system 2 years or 22 years,” Ms. Black told members of the Assembly and Senate budget committees.
