Fixing the Student Debt Crisis by Holding Higher Education Accountable (Guest: Representative Virginia Foxx, R-NC)

May 31, 2018

Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) illustrates her efforts to hold higher education institutions accountable for the student debt crisis.

Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) discusses how Congress is proposing to fix the student debt crisis while holding colleges and universities accountable with HR4508, known as the PROSPER Act (Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education). The PROSPER Act streamlines post-secondary process to one grant, one loan, and one campus based program. Representative Foxx explains how this saves taxpayer money, helps more students attend post-secondary education, brings fairness and equality to the process, and lowers costs for students.
