  1. Why do I expect the secretary of education to use language above the 8th grade level? Today I heard you expounding about colleges coming clean on costs. You said:
    Each year, colleges and universities send prospective students and their parents financial aid award letters, intended to lay out how much it will cost them to attend school. But, as you guys know, these letters often contain different information and often, frankly, do a poor job of making clear how much a student will receive in terms of grants and scholarships, and how much they’ll have to borrow in terms of student loans.

    “you guys”? Whom do you actually mean?
