Statement of Attorney General Josh Shapiro on Department of Education’s and Secretary DeVos’ Proposed Repeal of the Gainful Employment Rule

August 10, 2018 | Topic: Consumers

HARRISBURG — “The Department of Education’s move today to obliterate the Gainful Employment Rule is another move by Secretary Devos to prioritize deceptive for-profit colleges over students working to earn an education,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said.

“This rule shields students against fraudulent education programs that leave them buried under debt they are unable to repay, and its repeal is an attack on consumers. If this proposal is enacted, I will take legal action against Secretary Devos and the Department to fight for these protections and defend Pennsylvania’s students.”
