"Andrew Kelly: Completion, costs and value of a college education" is a podcast interview with Andrew Kelly, Director of the Center on Higher Education Reform at the American Enterprise Institute. Kelly discusses key issues regarding college completion rates, the relationship of a college to labor market success, financing postsecondary education, and how innovation will play into the future of higher education. More specifically, Kelly discusses perceptions and realities about the level of risk involved in pursuing postsecondary education, including the recently resurrected idea of Income Share Agreements (ISAs) and their potential role in helping financing postsecondary education. Kelly also discusses the barriers associated with highly innovative educational models and the role of accreditation. Lastly, Kelly shares his thoughts of what is likely to be included in the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act including FAFSA simplification, rationalization of income-based repayment programs, increased interest in competency-based learning, and accountability for institutions.

Interview facilitation, commentary and discussion presented by Kathryn Dodge, Alison Griffin, and Elise Scanlon of Radio Higher Ed.
