Congress Has So Far Left For-Profits Out of Short-Term Pell Debate

Inside Higher Education reports that the JOBS Act, a bill that would provide Pell Grant eligibility for short-term (e.g. 8-week) postsecondary programs, would not include for-profit higher education programs, yet the for-profit sector has not so far mounted a vocal opposition to the bill. From Inside Higher Education: "The agreement to exclude for-profits from the bill shows there are exceptions to GOP lawmakers’ dedication to a common set of standards for all colleges... The lack of activity from for-profits on the JOBS Act, meanwhile, suggests much of the sector may have bigger preoccupations as lawmakers negotiate a new landmark higher ed law, including a potential fight over the federal rule that limits the proportion of a for-profit college's revenue that can come from federal student aid."
