Accreditation and quality assurance systems assure the public that accredited organizations are competent and their results can be relied upon. Many groups such as the National Commission on Forensic Science, the National Academy of Sciences, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) recognize that accreditation is critically important.

In American high schools, the CDC reports, almost one fourth of girls have seriously considered suicide, and one tenth have attempted it. Almost one fifth of all students have seriously considered it. And yet where are the fights for arts and language and music programs that might channel these anxious and expressive impulses? Instead, the goal of governments and school districts in charge of high schoolers is to pass the buck onto college deans, who are broadly derelict in their duty.
