Just days after the Department of Education released Gainful Employment Informational Debt Measures and Gainful Employment Informational Loan Medians to institutions, GE is Dead!
On Saturday, United States District Judge Rudolph Contreras struck down Gainful Employment rules in a suit that the Association of Private Colleges and Universities brought against the Department of Education and Secretary Arne Duncan to challenge Gainful Employment rules.
Check out the full text of the legal decision here:
For the last ten years, I’ve worked in higher education. I started out as a Financial Aid Advisor and worked my way up from there. For the last seven years I’ve been working for a mid-sized group of proprietary schools as their Corporate Director of Financial Aid. Until today, I oversaw the administration of their Title IV program across 30 campuses and for more than 10,000 students and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Today, I’m starting a new career as a consultant and blogger. I’ll still be working in the higher education space and of course, specializing in Title IV Administration. Those of you who know me are familiar with the daily FAST FACTS emails I’ve been sending out for a few years now, so if you liked those, you’ll like this blog too. In the coming days you’ll see articles, analysis and most importantly dialogue; all wrapped up into neat little snippets that are just the right size to get you through your morning cup of coffee. I know you’ll like my blog. I’ve got some work to do to get it ready so, check back tomorrow for an update.
Be the change you want to see in the world. Make a Great Day!
