How Colleges Can Survive

I’ve been wondering aloud about whether or not high schools will still be around in 50 years.  Andrew Barras is wondering if colleges will be around in 10 years.  After some economic analysis of the current situation, he provides six recommendations.  I like #6:

“Your past won’t save you. Just because you have been around for 200 years doesn’t mean you will survive the next 10. The playing field has changed and is now global. Act as though you could lose everything tomorrow (because you might). Let healthy fear drive you to innovation and risk taking.”
