This just in my inbox from the US Department of Education. First2 certainly seems to be connected to several of these priorities!
“On January 27, 2022, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona presented his vision for continued recovery through the pandemic and his priorities for broader investments in America’s education system to ensure all students can succeed and thrive. Secretary Cardona emphasized key actions in four priority areas that will guide the Department’s work over the coming months and years:
Support students through pandemic response and recovery.
Boldly address opportunity and achievement gaps.
Make higher education more inclusive and affordable.
Ensure pathways through higher education lead to successful careers.
