On Tuesday, Education and the Workforce Committee Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) released the following statement in response to Harvard President Claudine Gay stepping down from her role following her stark testimony during the Committee’s December 5th hearing on antisemitism:

“What the world saw from President Gay on December 5 was repeated equivocation – and no one has forgotten it since. It is particularly appalling that on the day following the hearing, President Gay released a statement blaming members of the public for holding her to account – and rightfully calling out her evasiveness. Then there are allegations after allegations of plagiarism – this academically dishonest behavior is appalling. While President Gay’s resignation is welcome news, the problems at Harvard are much larger than one leader and the Committee’s oversight will continue.

“Postsecondary education is in a tailspin. There has been hostile takeover of postsecondary education by political activists, woke faculty, and partisan administrators. College campuses are a breeding ground for illiberal thought.

“The college education model should, at its very core, be an open marketplace for all ideas to be heard, free of political bias and agendas. Most importantly, this model should lead students to a job upon graduation.

“Many universities and students have lost sight of this.

“The Committee is working hard on policy reforms to the Higher Education Act and restore the value of college education for students and taxpayers.”
