New Regulations Needed To Rein In For-Profit Colleges | Education Opportunity Network

The good news coming from the U.S. Department of Education recently is the effort to put tougher restrictions on for-profit scam colleges that rip off students, families, and the taxpayers.

 

The bad news is that not all Democrats are behind this effort and pushing for the tighter restrictions.

 

Think Progress last week passed along a report from The Wall Street Journal that Big Ed has drafted a rewrite of regulations to rein in “for-profit schools whose students end up deep in debt or default on their student loans at exceptionally high rates.”

 

The colleges that would be most heavily affected include the University of Phoenix (owned by Apollo Education Group), Kaplan Higher Education, Devry Inc., The Art Institute (owned by Education Management Corporation), and Corinthian Colleges, among others.

 

The guidelines provide the teeth for what is referred to in wonk-speak as a “gainful employment” plan. The new regulations could go into effect as early as 2015 and could cause, according to the WSJ report, “as many as 20 percent of programs at for-profit colleges” to lose revenue. Public and non-profit colleges four-year colleges would be exempted.

 

Writers at Think Progress provided some useful backstory:

 

“For-profit schools have come under scrutiny for burdening students with debt without giving them degrees or skills that help them get jobs to pay them off. Many for-profit schools and community colleges have higher rates of students defaulting on their loans than who actually graduate. More than three-quarters of the students at for-profit colleges fail to earn a degree within six years.”

 

Further, low-income students are particularly vulnerable to the predatory nature of these for-profit schools, because these students “attend for-profit colleges at a rate four times higher than other students.”

 

Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are also at risk of being scammed by the for-profit higher ed sector.

Gainful Employment for Thee, Not Me

Gainful Employment for Thee, Not Me | Leading Change | Scoop.it

The Education Department's new regulations should be applied across the board or not at all. Gainful employment is the term used for the department’s standards for vocational programs at for-profit institutions and community colleges. Under the new rules, schools at which a large percentage of students fail to find jobs after graduation will become ineligible for federal funds.
