Education Department Proposes New Regulations to Protect Students and Taxpayers from Predatory Institutions
Press Office, (202) 401-1576, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Education today proposed regulations to further protect student borrowers and taxpayers against predatory practices by postsecondary institutions. The regulations clarify, simplify, and strengthen existing regulations that grant students loan forgiveness if they were defrauded or deceived by an institution. The proposed regulations would also hold financially risky institutions accountable for their behavior and ban schools’ use of legal clauses to sidestep accountability.
