Episode 87: Dissecting the Midterm Elections and Higher Education

This week on "Off The Cuff," Megan, Stephen, and Allie rehash the details of Tuesday's midterm elections, and how the outcome could impact higher education policy. With Democrats in control of the House of Representatives, some think there may be potential for bipartisan cooperation and progress toward reauthorizing the Higher Education Act, the group discusses. Aside from pushing forward on policy, Democrats may also use the opportunity to increase oversight of the Department of Education by calling Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to testify more frequently. Plus, Stephen goes into what role education broadly played in the elections, and how some politicians are already looking forward to 2020.
