Higher Ed

I’ve known Jon Oberg in a couple of capacities and I think he’s a real class act, so it’s great to see this big NYT story by Sam Dillon that basically gives him his due on these student loan shenanigans. I wish, however, that Russ Whitehurst’s role in this was put in more context in terms of what he was trying to do at the time to get better alignment within his agency around research. Russ, too, is a class act and his role and views, explained somewhat in the article, make more sense in context. He’s hardly an administration hatchet man.
