The authors first discuss the emergence of WIA in the context of recent market-driven pressures on community colleges. Next, they provide an overview of the relevant components of WIA. Finally, they examine how the implementation and practice of WIA affects the ability of low-income populations to obtain postsecondary education. Important policy elements such as accountability measures and the focus on multiple customers have undercut the rhetoric of free choice.
Thus, in practice, WIA has actually limited access to education and training at community colleges. Skip to main content.

Rhetoric versus reality: The role of research in deconstructing concepts of caring.
We find that the UK does well among bilateral agencies, the US is below average, and Scandinavian donors do surprisingly poorly. The biggest difference is between the UN agencies, who mostly rank in the bottom half of donors, and everyone else. Average performance of all agencies on transparency, fragmentation, and selectivity is still very poor.
The paper also assesses trends in best practices over time—we find modest improvement in transparency and more in moving away from ineffective channels. However, we find no evidence of improvements and partial evidence of worsening in specialization, fragmentation, and selectivity, despite escalating rhetoric to the contrary.
