My draft article, "Education's Priority Challenges
," addresses the goals of AASCU's Red Balloon Project as they relate to both education providers and
education's external "investors" - students, families, donors, governments, employers, and suppliers. The article also offers a theoretical example of the kind of win-win collaboration that might be viably piloted through AASCU and its "partners" of all stripes. The theoretical "economic governance collaboration" described in the article draws on the research that made Professor Elinor Ostrom (Indiana University) a 2009 Nobel Laureate in Economics.
