The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) Center for Higher Education Director Dr. Tom Lindsay testified today on higher education reform at a hearing titled, “Restoring the Trust for Families and Working-Age Americans,” before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Budget.
“To summarize my views, this country has embarked on very well-intentioned federal policies aiming to increase college access, for which all involved are to be commended for their earnestness,” said Dr. Lindsay. “Nevertheless, as with nearly all government policies, there have been some negative, unintended consequences. In my view, the work ahead of us must consist in no small part in moderating some of these policies in order to better align higher-education demand with pricing, as well as to better balance student access with success.”
