I don't like this idea at all.
At the American Council on Education's annual meeting earlier this month, Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. and a former university president, pressed college presidents to offer three-year degrees. In Rhode Island, legislators are considering a bill that would create a standard set of college-level classes for high schools, so all students could have an opportunity to finish college in three yearsAnd of course, a Tennessean is involved.
My biggest problem with this is it will give me one less reason to dislike Canadians (who only go for three years). That's a shame.
