If you’re interested in Higher Ed issues don’t miss Stephen Burd’s explosive look at lobbying over the higher education reauthorization bill in The Chronicle of Higher Education:
“Policy doesn’t count anymore,” says Thomas R. Wolanin, a former Democratic Congressional aide who helped manage three previous renewals of the Higher Education Act. “It’s all about politics and power, and who gets money, and not about broad discussions of public policy. And Democrats are not much better than Republicans on this score.”
Plenty more. People are chattering about this one. And, it’s only going to get more interesting as the election goes forward. Kerry – Edwards lean toward direct lending.
