U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander, who served a term as Secretary of Education after his tenure as governor of Tennessee, is the author, as part of Newsweek’s current cover package, of an article advocating three-year degree programs at the college level.

Likening such a cost-0conscious model to the rationale for fuel-efficient automobiles, Alexander writes, “Expanding the three-year option or year-round schedules may be difficult, but it may be more palatable than asking Congress for additional bailout money, asking legislators for more state support, or asking students for even higher tuition payments.
