Kevin Carey's tour of higher-ed frontlines in Silicon Valley

BREACHING HIGHER-ED: Kevin Carey, director at New America Foundation's education policy program and frequent contributor to the Chronicle of Higher Ed, takes us on his whirlwind tour in Washington Monthly through some of Silicon Valley's biggest shakers in the ed space--including Learn Capital, Minerva Project, Stanford, and Founders Fund. (Inside scoop: he starts his voyage at a backyard BBQ cooked by EdSurge's Agustin and Nick.) It's a 7-page romp through how edtech entrepreneurs are bandying about cherished Silicon Valley truisms (Stuff scales! See Moore's Law!) Nice peeks of some familiar names including Inigral, Open Study, Quizlet, Udemy, Degreed and Chegg. These are part of what Carey calls the first wave of a "relentless" assault on the traditional higher ed business model.
