Secretary of Educatioin Arne Duncan sent a letter of support to Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid laying out his support for the DREAM Act. Secretary Duncan says, in part:
I strongly urge the Senate to pass this bill because I believe it will play an important part in our efforts to meet the Administration’s goals of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020. Even more, it will allow these young people to live up to their fullest potential and contribute to the economic growth of our country. I look forward to working with you on this important issue.
