GAO summarized information relating to the federal government's role in the nation's educational system.

GAO noted that the Department of Education could: (1) reduce the cost of higher education by improving student loan collections, reducing loan defaults, improving lender compliance with reporting requirements, and improving loan program monitoring; (2) enhance its role in elementary and secondary education programs by providing better guidance for federal program implementation and collecting and analyzing education related data from states; and (3) strengthen departmental management by developing an operational management system with realistic program priorities and improving financial management systems to address accounting and internal control weaknesses.
