UK or US university- where should I go ?? Pros n Cons of both the countries’ education?

Question by : UK or US university- where should I go ?? Pros n Cons of both the countries’ education?
I am from India & have been accepted at some UK unis & some US ones.

US- Penn State U Park , Purdue , Virginia Tech.
UK- Nottingham, Leeds, Uni of Manchester(not Metropolitan), Bristol.

All are for engineering with Manchester being in Software engineering.

Which country would suit my interests the best. Besides is the cliche of UK being inferior to US in engg. & tech any true?

Is UK worth spending around 100K of pounds sterling? Is uni of manchester something special.

See I have had mixed opinion about UNI OF MANCHESTER with some saying its pretty selective, snooty, academic while others say its more of a party school & not as good as Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Nottgm etc.

Further its consistantly ranked amid top 30 unis by THES & top 40 by ARWU however its at 28th in UK by sunday, guardian while RAE ranks it at 6 in UK & 8 in Europe.

Further, at Penn StateU I would be far from elite unis or the top 20 stuff in US while with MANCHESTER it is top 30 in th world & with just Oxbridge, Imperial, UCL above & at par with edinburgh & moreover its been on a consistent rise in world rankings. ITs engg. is ranked 35 in the world.

So where should I go, given the transfer option is available in US so whats the max I can reach out for from Penn State in the sophomore year.

Equity and Excellence in American Higher Education (Thomas Jefferson Foundation Distinguished Lecture Series)

Equity and Excellence in American Higher Education (Thomas Jefferson Foundation Distinguished Lecture Series)

Thomas Jefferson once stated that the foremost goal of American education must be to nurture the “natural aristocracy of talent and virtue.” Although in many ways American higher education has fulfilled Jefferson’s vision by achieving a widespread level of excellence, it has not achieved the objective of equity implicit in Jefferson’s statement. In Equity and Excellence in American Higher Education, William G. Bowen, Martin A. Kurzweil, and Eugene M. Tobin explore the cause for this divide. Employing historical research, examination of the most recent social science and public policy scholarship, international comparisons, and detailed empirical analysis of rich new data, the authors study the intersection between “excellence” and “equity” objectives.

Beginning with a time line tracing efforts to achieve equity and excellence in higher education from the American Revolution to the early Cold War years, this narrative reveals the halting, episodic progress in broadening access across the dividing lines of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. The authors argue that despite our rhetoric of inclusiveness, a significant number of youth from poor families do not share equal access to America’s elite colleges and universities. While America has achieved the highest level of educational attainment of any country, it runs the risk of losing this position unless it can markedly improve the precollegiate preparation of students from racial minorities and lower-income families.

After identifying the “equity” problem at the national level and studying nineteen selective colleges and universities, the authors propose a set of potential actions to be taken at federal, state, local, and institutional levels. With recommendations ranging from reform of the admissions process, to restructuring of federal financial aid and state support of public universities, to addressing the various precollegiate obstacles that disadvantaged students face at home and in school, the authors urge all selective colleges and universities to continue race-sensitive admissions policies, while urging the most selective (and privileged) institutions to enroll more well-qualified students from families with low socioeconomic status.

Massive Education Cuts In Pennsylvania

Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss how Pennsylvania Republican Governor Tom Corbett wants to drastically slash the education budget in his state. To make matters worse the cuts would target poor school districts while having minimal impact on the district with charter schools. Is this because a top donor to Corbett has a financial investment in charter schools?
