Falwell To Head New Federal Task Force on Department of Education Policies

The Chronicle of Higher Education reported this week that Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. has been asked by President Trump to lead a new task force that will identify Department of Education policies and procedures that should be changed.  Falwell says he sees the task force as a response to overreaching regulation of accreditation standards and policies that affect student recruitment by colleges. The New York Times yesterday speculated that Falwell's Liberty University could benefit from certain regulatory rollbacks.
