U.S. Education Department Senior Officials Highlight Administration's Efforts to Make College More Affordable During Visit to North Carolina
U.S. Under Secretary of Education Martha Kanter and White House HBCU Executive Director John Wilson will continue the Obama Administration's discussion on college affordability and the shared responsibility to contain costs during a trip to Greensboro, N.C., on Monday.
Tomorrow, I have the pleasure of speaking at the National Hispanic Education Summit held by the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents, or ALAS. I spoke at their summit last year, and I’m excited to be able to return on behalf of the Department to spend time with this passionate group of leaders!
To give you a quick preview of my remarks, I want to share this short video, put together by the Department, which profiles a young woman named Samantha Hernandez. Her story demonstrates that college is a very real and attainable dream for our Latino students, and all of our students.
