Betsy DeVos is releasing for-profit colleges from Obama-era restraints

Well of course she is. How are for-profit diploma mills supposed to ripoff educate young folks, their parents and taxpayers, if they have to report things like how their grads do?

The Obama administration took an aggressive approach to for-profit colleges. Secretary DeVos has changed course, putting in place industry insiders and freezing or slow-rolling several Obama-era regulations that would have increased protections for prospective and current students.

DeVos has moved to gut Obama-era regulations that would have judged programs at for-profit colleges and vocational programs at all colleges on whether students earned enough money to repay their debts. Programs that failed to meet the standard would lose access to federal student loans — a serious financial blow in an industry that depends largely on students using federal loans to pay tuition and fees.

DeVos also delayed a requirement that institutions disclose their graduates’ debt and earnings...

For DeVos, education is all about the grift.

It's time for that Trump University comeback we've all been waiting for.

Sure they do. It is how the well off get on the dole and it's not their salary that matters.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
