Ring of Fire: Betsy DeVos’s Department of Education Now Being Sued By 18 States

18 of the 50 states in the U.S. have joined together in a lawsuit against the Department of Education and its leader, Secretary Betsy DeVos over what appears to be a blatant bias toward for-profit schools.

The 18 states have a simple complaint: DeVos has as of yet refused to implement an Obama-era rule which would allow students who are victimized by scam schools to have an easier route to loan forgiveness.

The Borrower Defense Rule was proposed and negotiated in response to for-profit “Schools” Conrintian Colleges and ITT Technical Institute were forced to shut down hundreds of facilities after a regulatory crackdown. If implemented, the rule would allow students who had obtained loans to fund their education at a for-profit school to pursue relief if the school had been subject to federal action against them.
