Landmark Law on Higher Education Should Be Scrapped, DeVos Suggests

Clare McCann was quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education about Secretary DeVos's suggestion to scrap the Higher Education Act of 1965. 

Clare McCann, a senior policy analyst at New America, a think tank in Washington, said Ms. DeVos’s continued suggestion of a replacement for the landmark law shows how the Trump administration misunderstands higher education.
"There’s a lot of room in higher education for significant improvement, that needs overhaul, but the basics of the Higher Education Act are not likely going to change — and I’m not sure that they should," Ms. McCann said. "We can re-imagine higher ed without starting from scratch on the entire concept of it."
