Federal education official calls for stable higher ed funding

Today’s Seattle Times reports on the public forum in Kane Hall last night where Martha Kanter, undersecretary of the U.S. Department of Education and a key policymaker in the  Obama administration, called for  “stable and predictable higher-education funding” to ensure all residents  at least a year of education after high school.  She also called the UW a  “model” for its high graduation rate and a low number of student loan defaults.
