On-Demand Micro-Credits: A New Paradigm for Higher Ed

it is highly espoused that the monopoly of higher education is damaging students credit and future ability to repay student loans. financing college is an expense similar to a home mortgage or car loan, with the capacity for the federal government to extort collection even during insolvency. a new paradigm for these clunky, mini-marts of employment and access to higher social stratification is the premise of a micro-credit. these programs use search engine software such as the one listed below to assemble university scholarly experts with their peers and may even offer occupations to their grad students through a google search engine type of interface relying on expertise-locator search terms. micro-credits or micro-terms are thus possible ostensibly providing educational specialization for an immediate job with quick turnaround time, as short as a week. my software indexes the websites of every accredited university in the country by expert and email providing an environment for managing scholarly inventory with ease, alleviating the common modern financial burden and expense of longer term 4-year universities and graduate schools.

The Governance Gap Between Elected Officials and Appointed Operational Leaders

the article below outlines a common theme in modern governance, the gap between the executive view of elected officials and the operational view of employee and budget management where leaders such as the POTUS are often advised by staffed policy managers. an issue in this case is the staffing and operational logistics of appointed officials creating a continuation of modern govermental analysis. in his resignation letter, James W. Runcie describes the “successfully leading and managing a large, complex organization in the public sector requires alignment on governance and mission between operational leaders and political ones” (Mitchell) this suggests that such a gap is universal in government policy and decision-making and not present in just this instance.
