Transparency in Higher Education Discussion
At 9:30 am on May 9, U.S. Senators Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Mark Warner, D-Va., and U.S. Representatives Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., and Robert Andrews, D-N.J., talked with a group of high school students, parents and guidance counselors about the challenges of choosing a college without accurate and comparative information about graduation rates and expected debt, earnings and employment.
The lawmakers also announced the Student Right to Know Before You Go Act of 2013, a bicameral, bipartisan bill that would ensure that a wide range of accurate, comparative and easy to understand data about colleges would be readily available online for prospective students and their families.
