Congress takes up college affordability

It’s more than 1,000 pages long, but here is H.R. 4674, “To amend and strengthen the Higher Education Act of 1965 to lower the cost of college for students and families, to hold colleges accountable for students’ success, and to give a new generation of students the opportunity to graduate on-time and transition to a successful career.”

EdNC is holding an Open Newsroom event on Tuesday, October 22 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in downtown Raleigh to discuss learning differences and special education in North Carolina. Here is more information. Join us.
