Today, U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), a member of the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), along with U.S. Representatives John Larson (CT-1), Joe Courtney (CT-2), a member of the U.S. House of Representatives Education and the Workforce Committee, Rosa DeLauro (CT-3), Jim Himes (CT-4), and Elizabeth Esty (CT-5), called on Secretary Betsy DeVos to abandon the “borrower defense” rule change at the Department of Education, which would rescind an Obama-era policy put in place to protect students who are misled by predatory for-profit colleges. This proposed rule will make it much harder for Connecticut students, saddled with debt but no legitimate education, to receive the relief they deserve. This is the latest step in a pattern of concerning actions by Secretary DeVos to put for-profit colleges and corporations’ bottom line ahead of students.
