Yesterday, The Century Foundation (TCF) published another agenda-driven report critiquing OPMs. So, our co-founder and CEO quickly responded in a series of tweets to help set the record straight.

As I read the TCF report, I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes from the writer Issac Asimov: “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” As we enter a new and challenging phase for higher education as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which may raise some existential questions for colleges and universities, we all have a collective responsibility to scrub off our windows. #NoBackRow
