Dear Director Easton:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment about the proposed rating system for colleges and universities. We at SHEEO share the Department’s desire for quality, affordable, cost effective higher education that leads to meaningful learning and appropriate credentials for millions of Americans from every segment of society, particularly from those low income and disadvantaged backgrounds. President Obama recognized this imperative early and it is from this emphasis on success that the rating proposal was born. It is with the idea of student success in mind that we are offering some suggestions.
