Campus Progress is working to highlight disturbing practices at some for-profit colleges across the country. For-profit schools currently serve 10 percent of U.S. students but account for 25 percent of federal student aid—and 44 percent of student loan defaults. While there are some quality programs at for-profit schools, too many for-profit programs are marked by skyrocketing tuition, high dropout rates, and insurmountable debt for many students.
The Department of Education has proposed regulations to enforce current laws that require programs, like those offered at for profit colleges, to prepare students for "gainful employment."
Visit http://www.campusprogress.org/education to find out more about the work Campus Progress and other organizations are doing to ensure that the Department of Education's proposed "gainful employment" rule is implemented.
