Republicans Like Higher Ed

May 21, 2018

A pair of surveys last year from the Pew Research Center and Gallup showed deep skepticism about higher education among Republican respondents.  While subsequent, less publicized surveys painted a more complex picture, many college leaders and academics remain worried about whether Republican scrutiny could lead to (more) budget cuts or policy crackdowns.
