U.S. Department of Education in the News
The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has been making headlines this morning:
The Chronicle of Higher Education and Inside Higher Education both report on the results of an ED Office for Civil Rights Title IX investigation of the University of Southern California.
Inside Higher Education also reports on news about ED's recent changes to the Borrower Defense Rule: "For all of President Trump’s controversial policies, it has been rare for the Republican Senate to formally condemn the administration. But lobbyists on both sides of the debate over U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's borrower-defense rule say it’s increasingly possible that the Republican Senate could join the Democratic House in rebuking the administration over the rule critics say makes it harder for defrauded students to have their education loans forgiven."
