UNC system's new enrollment policy just a "Potemkin Village"

So argues the Pope Centers Jay Schalin in this piece we have released today.
UNC purports to aim at controlling growth in the numbers of students by holding schools accountable for results on retention and graduation measures. Jay notes, however, "with millions of dollars at stake in trying to meet (those) standards, administrators will be tempted to lower students' workloads and increase grade inflation in order to meet their goals."
That's a good guess. We see the same thing happening in K-12 all the time.
