DeVos Wants to Make Loan Forgiveness HarderJanuary 5, 2018 |
by Henry Kronk
During her tenure so far, U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has made it her mission to walk back regulations placed on the for-profit education industry. This week, it was revealed that she wants to take that mandate a step further by making it more difficult for students defrauded by online and in-person for-profits to forgive their federal debt.
Politico obtained a draft of a proposal on Wednesday by the Department of Education proposal that would place a higher burden of proof on individuals seeking compensation from certain for-profit institutions who were found to practice illegal and predatory behavior against their students.
