Ed undersecretary shares Obama administration's home stretch vision - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

With strong remarks on diversity and inclusion, U.S. Department of Education Undersecretary Ted Mitchell laid out four tenets of the Obama administration’s approach to revitalizing higher education in its final 200 days in office. “Let’s think about where there are holes, and how we can fill those holes. And who is missing from this debate,” said Mitchell, who opened the department’s "Reimagining Higher Education" convening at Georgetown University last month in front of dozens of policy makers, education executives and advocates assembled from around the country. “This is an awfully white room. As we think about moving forward, building an ecosystem, we need to make sure that the people who are building that ecosystem are parts of the communities for whom we are building it.”
