White House: Jerry Falwell Jr. Will Be Part Of Education Reform Task Force
June 12, 2017

The White House affirmed over the weekend that Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. will participate in a task force on higher education.

In January, the son of televangelist Jerry Falwell revealed to The Chronicle that he would lead a White House group that will look at reforming regulations on higher education.

But it wasn't until Sunday that the news was partially confirmed by a White House spokesperson -- who was authorized to speak on the condition of anonymity.

"We are working on a task force that Jerry Falwell will be involved with," the White House spokesperson told The Chronicle.
