April 13, 2021 — Letter

The undersigned organizations that work on higher education accountability, and advocate for students, military service members and veterans, low-income consumers, educators, and college administrators, as well as for educational equity, request your urgent attention to the borrower defense crisis you have inherited at the Department of Education.

The federal student aid program is intended to open the door to higher education and economic mobility for students otherwise unable to afford the cost, but for too long predatory schools have exploited the program and left students worse off.
