Today’s Students Need New Policy Solutions

One would assume that the federal law, which governs higher education, reflects the needs of today’s students. However, the Higher Education Act has not been updated in over a decade & today, the national student body is older, working more, attending college part-time & not living on campus. Hear from current/former Congressional staffers who will craft new policies: will they reflect solutions that encourage innovation, address financial needs & ensure students are prepared for the workforce?
