Provide Your Input Into the Higher Education Act Reauthorization

Congress has begun requesting comments on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, and ACTE needs your input into our priorities!

Specifically, the House Education and the Workforce Committee has asked for input that will enable them to: empower students as consumers in higher education; simplify and improve the student aid and loan programs; increase college accessibility, affordability, and completion; encourage institutions to reduce costs; promote innovation to improve access to and delivery of higher education; and balance the need for accountability with the burden of federal requirements. Issues related to student financial aid and data collection requirements are of particular importance to postsecondary CTE programs.

We have developed a short, 13-question survey for those of you who are involved in postsecondary CTE. It will only take a few minutes of your time. Please click here to provide your input-your thoughts are extremely important to us!
