Student, Veterans, Other Groups Defend Gainful Employment Rule, Other Student Protections To Congress
We joined The Institute for College Access and Success, the AFL-CIO, Americans for Financial Reform, Consumers Union, Student Veterans of America, Veterans for Common Sense and a total of 53 organizations in a letter to the Congress opposing any effort to delay, roll back, or repeal the Department of Education's gainful employment rule, 'borrower defense' and college accountability rules, or the ban on incentive compensation for encouraging enrollment in for-profit schools.
These rules, and others, are largely the result of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, state Attorneys General and Department of Education investigations and enforcement actions against notorious for-profit schools ranging from the shut-down Corinthian Colleges to ITT Tech.
