The Department of Education began negotiations to change regulations related to the for-profit college industry in December, a move that some advocates say will harm students.

“This proceeding is blocking a regulation that was carefully considered and carefully crafted to protect students and taxpayers from well-documented abuses by some career colleges… These students, as before, will be veterans, single mothers, people of color, immigrants, and the forgotten Americans President Trump promised to fight for,” David Halperin, an attorney who writes about the for-profit-college sector, said at the meeting.
