Interesting. "Many for-profits are pushing for standardization of curriculum across institutions so that it becomes easier to size up comparable programs." One wonders how a Harvard or a Cambridge will adjust its curriculum so it can be compared with, say, Argosy University. Sounds impossible? It is not beyond the pale to imagine the day when the private sector institutions have the clout to push educational standards in the same way they have already pushed things like educational metadata standards.
