Amy Laitinen, who worked in the Obama administration and is now director of higher education at the left-leaning New America Foundation, has advocated for ending the credit hour as we know it, saying it was not created to measure student learning. However, she has criticized the proposed GOP changes, saying, “It’s hard for me to see a world where we don’t see massive fraud and abuse if this bill were passed.”
