Republican Higher Education Bill Clears First Hurdle

Clare McCann was quoted by the Associated Press on the accountability provisions in the House's Higher Education Act reauthorization bill:

"It is somewhat surprising how brazen the bill is in terms of reducing accountability and providing more taxpayer dollars to for-profit colleges without any strings attached," said Clare McCann, a higher education expert with the New America think tank. "The bill went out of its way to limit any kind of accountably for profits."
