by Tabatha Lewis
A bill proposed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday aims to reform how the federal government oversees higher education.
North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx introduced House Resolution 4508, which expands the Pell Grant, a federal financial aid program, to include shorter-term programs like apprenticeships. It would also cap the amount of loans students can receive and encourage universities to pursue business partnerships.
