Too often, we see for-profit schools take advantage of students, misuse taxpayer dollars and skirt rules. Today our message is clear: we will be vigilant in ensuring for-profit schools meet their commitments to students, families, and taxpayers.
It’s great to see all the hard work @MOEducation is doing for its schools. From COVID testing & support for student & staff mental health to online options for new candidates to ensure the teacher pipeline remains strong, there is a lot to be proud of. https://t.co/wbX07Hp0OL
The 2021 Presidential Scholars represent the extraordinary achievements of our nation's most distinguished students. I am delighted to join @POTUS in saluting these outstanding young people for their achievements, service, character and continued pursuit of excellence.

The resources are there. The science is there. We have great examples across the country of what can be done.
There is no reason to wait any longer. It’s time to get students back in the classroom where they belong.
Thank you @JoaquinCastrotx. The pandemic didn’t discriminate which students got COVID-19, so we want to make sure all students have access to the funds to help them get back on track. https://t.co/Q7BNcMwPam
Every student struggling during this pandemic deserves emergency assistance and to receive financial help as soon as possible. Important leadership from @SecCardona. The American people finally have an Education Secretary and @POTUS who put students first. https://t.co/TnrUII7Yf0
