11/1/2012: The US still has a comparative advantage in higher education. But if we keep going down this road it’s just going to be in football. From Insidehighered.com:
Education officials from Taiwan traveled to California last week to recruit students, The Los Angeles Times reported. About 1,000 people — many of them recruited because they are Taiwanese-Americans — attended the first education fair ever put on by Taiwan in the United States. Wei-Ling Chiang, Taiwan’s minister of education, made the case, noting that undergraduates would pay about $3,000 in tuition, lower living costs than in the U.S., and that some programs are taught in English.
