DNC on Trump Admin Eliminating the Gainful Employment Rule

In response to reports that the Trump administration is eliminating the gainful employment rule, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:


“The Obama administration enacted the gainful employment rule to ensure for-profit schools gave students the skills they need to obtain good-paying jobs. Now, instead of working to build the workforce of the future, Betsy DeVos is eliminating the gainful employment rule and allowing predatory for-profit schools to defraud and take advantage of students.


“While the Trump administration refuses to hold predatory institutions accountable, Democrats are fighting to ensure all students can get a good education and a good-paying job – without being saddled with mountains of debt.”
