Chair Foxx Reacts to Biden’s Online Education Guidance

Today, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement in reaction to the Education Department’s announcement regarding online education:
“It is reckless for the Department to suggest providing access to online education is a main driver of federal student loan debt. Instead, innovations in postsecondary education, including online education, have broken through access barriers for many adult learners. While I share the belief that we must ensure programs provide value to students and taxpayers, it’s never going to work for the Department to push blanket compliance policies onto entities, especially those organizations that help students complete their education through effective retention strategies. I sincerely hope the Biden administration is ready to listen to all facts and all stakeholders during the next phase of this anticipated guidance.”
