DeVos Wades into Debate Over How to Modernize Higher Education

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos signaled her approach to modernizing the higher education landscape Thursday, collecting advice from industry leaders on how the federal government can help overhaul an antiquated delivery system to meet modern workforce needs.

“The reality is that there are a number of challenges and opportunities facing higher education, and Washington, D.C., does not have all the answers,” DeVos said in introductory remarks to an Education Department event billed as the “Rethink Higher Education Summit.”
