Monday's D3 Daily Action: Oppose Betsy DeVos' Decision To Loosen For-Profit College Rules
On July 1, colleges were supposed to begin disclosing information about program performance to students in their marketing materials. The schools now have an extra year to comply.
"Once fully implemented, the current rules would unfairly and arbitrarily limit students' ability to pursue certain types of higher education and career training programs," DeVos said in a statement.
Democratic attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia sued U.S. Education over this decision to suspend rules that were meant to protect students from abuse by for-profit colleges.
PLEASE CALL OUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND ASK THEM TO STAND UP FOR STUDENT RIGHTS:
Script: I’m from [ZIP] and I am very concerned about Betsy DeVos’ decision to loosen for-profit college rules. I want students to be protected. I want colleges and universities to be evaluated based on how many graduates are able to pay back their loans--and if programs consistently fail these tests, they should lose access to federal student-aid dollars. Thank you.
