The “gainful employment” regulation, then, penalizes institutions the more they meet the needs of low-income students. And it denies those students the support they require to attend programs they believe will help them secure gainful employment!
In short, when you kill job training, you kill job opportunities.
Fortunately for America’s working adult and low income students, the Department of Education’s Gainful Employment regulation is not yet officially implemented. So there is still time to prevent Washington from blocking the opportunity for millions of Americans to improve their lives and get a better job.
It is time we demand our congressmen and senators – and those running for office – to promise to take measures to block the Department of Education from implementing this destructive regulation.
