Happy Thanksgiving

Published:  November 25, 2008

Higher Ed Watch is about to take the week off to celebrate Thanksgiving, and help ourselves to plenty of turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. But before we do, here is a brief list of some things that we are especially thankful for:

  • New leadership coming to the U.S. Department of Education that will hopefully close the revolving door between the agency and the student loan industry.


But mostly we're thankful for our loyal and spirited readership. Thanks for tuning in, and enjoy the holiday!
