Last week Secretary Arne Duncan and White House Director of Domestic Policy Melody Barnes participated in a live chat with HuffPost College.
They answered a number of questions, including…
How does the White House plan to encourage high school minority students to pursue higher education?
How can the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act, which takes effect in 2014, help students who are in college today?
What can the federal government do about the ever-increasing cost of higher education?
Questions came from HuffPost College’s network of college newspaper sites across the U.S.
