Education Secretary Duncan to Participate in Press Conference Call with College Journalists for MTV and College Coard's "Get Schooled College Affordability Challenge"

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will participate in a press conference call with young people about college affordability and the critical importance of higher education and attaining a degree at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 4. The call is part of MTV and the College Board's new "Get Schooled College Affordability Challenge," which aims to increase college completion by making it easier for middle and low-income students to navigate the financial aid process. The challenge calls upon current and aspiring college students to reimagine a simplified financial aid process that reaches students who are unsure whether they can afford college and yet fail to apply for aid.
