“We have entered an age of more accountability…”


Today, the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education published a new set of college rankings. The accompanying reports reflect the trend that’s been informing everything we do at the Education and Workforce Committee: people want stronger accountability in postsecondary education. 

The House of Representatives took a huge step toward empowering students yesterday with the passage of H.R. 1635, legislation to improve financial aid counseling for students receiving a Pell Grant or a federal loan. 

Students deserve a postsecondary education that meets their needs and prepares them to thrive after graduation, and the Committee is dedicated to making that a reality.
