In this week’s address, President Obama laid out his vision for quality, affordable higher education for all Americans.
The White House, March 14, 2015 — Today, a college degree is the surest ticket to the middle class and beyond, but it has also never been more expensive. Everyone, from elected officials to universities to business leaders, has a part to play in making college affordable for all students. The President has already made historic investments in college education affordability, and earlier this week, he announced a Student Aid Bill of Rights — a set of guiding principles behind his vision for affordable education.
