More About What a Biden Presidency Could Mean for Higher Education
There is more reporting this morning on what a Biden presidency could mean for higher education.
Inside Higher Education asks what President-Elect Biden may be able to accomplish should the Senate remain under Republican control. From Inside Higher Education: "In addition to blocking Biden’s more than $1 trillion plan to eliminate tuition at community colleges and historically Black colleges and universities, as well as public institutions for those making $125,000 or less, Republicans will likely also balk at his proposals to cancel $10,000 from all borrowers’ student debt during the pandemic."
Inside Higher Education also reports that "Joe Biden’s victory promises a reprieve for the hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers who have benefited from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program." From Inside Higher Education: "Biden has pledged to reinstate DACA, and The Washington Post reported he’s planning on signing an executive order to that effect immediately after taking office on Jan. 20. Early on the morning of Election Day, at 12:28 a.m., he tweeted his support of Dreamers: 'Dreamers are Americans -- and it’s time we make it official.'”
