International competition to US universities

<p>US</a> college degrees: Still the best among world's top universities? - Yahoo! News</p>

<p>"Since World War II, US higher education has been the gold standard. But challenged by increasing foreign competition, rising tuition costs, government cutbacks, flagging graduation rates, and questions about the very quality of the education being delivered, US dominance in academic and research power is now under threat."</p>

<p>I still think US universities have an edge, especially in their ties to industry. Interestingly for me, the article mentions my alma, where I hope to be for the 35th year reunion and see how much it's progressed or otherwise.</p>
