Working to advance students' rights to educational opportunity and to ensure that higher education provides a launching point for economic mobility.

Any reasonable view of its history suggests that ACICS needs to take a hard look at its past. Instead, its submission shies away from well-documented failures and instead casts its demise as an irregular, partisan witch hunt. Students from ITT & CCI may disagree.

@usedgov Accreditors are supposed to be about quality assurance. Period. Yet ACICS has a history of blessing schools that scammed students & left them with mountains of debt.

@usedgov ‼️NEWLY RELEASED DOCUMENTS detail ACICS's July 2021 appeal of that decision. Recognition is a virtual life-or-death issue for ACICS. That’s presumably why they retained not one – but two - #BigLaw firms to represent them. https://t.co/jl1PEqeg7l

Now is the time for the Department of Education to grant discharges to thousands of teachers, veterans, first responders and other public servants who were misled about which payment plans were eligible for Public Service Loan Forgiveness! https://t.co/FX16LuHOLq

The Biden Administration should move quickly to provide relief to thousands of students that attended closed predatory colleges by reinstating the automatic closed school discharge regulation. https://t.co/FX16LuqdTS

La’James Int’l College has defrauded students for years. But it’s agreement to receive federal $ expires this month. @FSACOO and @SecCardona should use this opportunity to protect students. https://t.co/UupP7xhfss

We also suggest additional steps for @usedgov to maximize deference that reviewing courts will ultimately afford the notice. The August 2021 draft from @fsacoo & @seccardona represents a great first step. By reviewing and considering all comments, it will only get better. /END

In 2015 and again last month, ED correctly opposed those efforts. But to provide some heft to its efforts to reject this novel, unsupported, & dangerous - argument, @usedgov must take its position with additional force.

@usedgov If that 2nd point seems out of the blue, think again. Schools – including recently in our ongoing Dream Center litigation – have asserted that the HEA preempts students from using state consumer protection laws to remedy blatant misconduct. As the Dream Center receiver claimed: https://t.co/Ze1veH2Jy9

In its repeal, @usedgov wisely sought comments. Today we submit ours. Our key points: (1) state laws protecting students from omissions by servicers are not preempted; & (2) state consumer protection laws are available for victims of predatory colleges. https://t.co/eIBmkuvEv1
