In January 2017, I made five predictions for the New Year:
- Trump will turn back the tide of for-profit school regulation
- Top schools will launch MOOC degrees
- A billionaire will found a new university
- ACICS, the embattled accreditor, will be reinvented
- A third big for-profit school will collapse
Research firms are always making giddy forecasts and market-changing predictions, but it is rare to see much reflection on accuracy. So almost a year on, was I right? Yes and no.
