and how well they can apply it. If a community college program
is preparing students well, the students will have the ability to
show that, employers will hire them, and the data will start to
come back.
The world needs more successful learning experiences that can

a feedback loop to grow. We believe that it's very possible to do.
It can be done through more public appropriation if the data is
there. It can be done through the private sector, companies investing more in those institutions.
There are many community college and many other less wellknown bachelor's degree programs that have specific expertise
that are doing a great job in applied learning. I think there is so
much upside to community colleges-if there is the feedback
loop where the data and the information say, "Hey, we're doing
well and we can get more [funding]." We
think that the real thing is to reward and to
grow success. That applies to every level of
education, but I think most importantly for

in Ghana or even in India, the issue [is], how you are equipping
individuals with the skills that are needed in a world in which
those skills are also constantly changing? Are [higher education
institutions] responsive to that?
I think the other dimension to this is in a world that is more
interconnected, that is more globalized, you
can focus a lot more on the different avenues
of work that someone sitting in Accra or in
Lagos or somewhere else might take that
