For-Profits Accuse DOE of Targeted Attacks

For-profit supporters and Department of Education officials are sparring over claims that the federal government used its student aid disbursement power to change rules and force the closure of several colleges and universities in recent months, the Hill reports.

Career Education Colleges and Universities CEO Steve Gunderson says that employment outcomes and debt-to-income standards disproportionately focus upon for-profit trends. “I think there are simply some people within this administration who are opposed to the concept of the private sector being involved in the delivery of education at any level and they want to dramatically reduce or eliminate the sector’s existence,” Gunderson told the Hill.
