About "Accreditation (NEG)"
Accreditation is the process whereby a college is certified with a stamp of approval by an outside private organization. The federal government sanctions certain organizations to provide this seal of approval and conditions all federal funding (e.g. student loans and aid) to go only to colleges that are accredited.
AFF plan will abolish federal sanctioning of accrediting agencies and cutting the requirement for accreditation to receive federal funds is the solution. Colleges will come up with new forms of validation and measurement as they compete for students and their dollars, and be free from the shackles of outdated accrediting institutions that impose huge costs and add no value.
Negative will argue that accreditation is good or could be easily fixed with minor repairs, not abolished. Removing the existing accreditation system will open up the flood gates to abuses and rip-offs by fraudulent institutions out to get students’ (and the government’s) money while providing no educational value.
