Protect Students and Taxpayers from Career Education Rip-Offs!
The Department of Education is working on a rule to protect students and taxpayers from rip-off career education programs. Tell the Department that the rule needs to prompt schools to quickly improve or end weak programs that consistently leave students with debts they can't pay.
The data the Department released in conjunction with its proposed rule are alarming. For example, at 114 programs there are more students who default on their loans than graduate.
It’s time to demand that these programs improve. Below is some sample language to help make your voice heard. We'll send your statement to the Education Department as well as your U.S. senators and representative. If you have a personal story, telling it will help protect the one million students the Department acknowledges are enrolled in programs that don’t meet its modest proposed standards.
P.S. Please keep the docket number at the top of the page so the Department will know what rule you are writing about.
