What do education and music have in common? Rhythm. We gain our first introduction to the rhythms of education in kindergarten. The natural order of fall starts, winter breaks, spring starts, and summers off provide the mile markers that guide us through the year and organize our memories. Then there is the rolling start cohort model of higher ed. The ultimate goal in today’s higher ed environment is to gain sustainability and scalability as an institution while creating the conditions for student satisfaction and success. This is why the fixed start, carousel model works far better for both the institution and the student.Adopting this model allows institutions to gain top dollar for every student they enroll while mitigating potential administrative and retention issues. That being said, no model is ever perfect.
