Foreign Students Sour on America, Jeopardizing a $39 Billion Industry

Interesting read. I never thought of higher education as a service that we export, every bit as important as soybeans and coal – perhaps more important. That is an interesting perspective consistent with reality. Soybean crop values totaled $38 billion in 2016: USDA website. Coal exports in 2018 were about $9 billion: EIA website. Hopefully, someday, we can get back to policies that promote education here in the U.S., welcome students from abroad, and thereby help our economy in the near and long-term.
