WILL ED KILL GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT

Last week the New York Times reported that they obtained a memo indicating that the Department of Education was planning on killing the Gainful Employment rules. Instead, the Department is allegedly planning to bolster information on the College Scorecard, which hasn’t historically included for-profit colleges. Not much else here to report at the moment since the Department has been silent on the issue. As of today, the Gainful Employment rules remain in effect. If the Department does indeed move forward with plans to scrap the GE rules, they’ll publish an official notice in the in the Federal Register. We’ll have to wait and see if this is #Fakenews or not.
