A.G. Schneiderman Joins Coalition Of 21 AGs Urging U.S. Department Of Education To Uphold Student Pr

A.G. Schneiderman's office press release ------ Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, part of a coalition of 21 state attorneys general, submitted public comments to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, calling a move by the U.S. Department of Education to replace existing student protections a “waste of resources and a betrayal of students.” The comments, submitted Wednesday night to Secretary DeVos, follow a lawsuit filed last week by 19 attorneys general, alleging that the Department violated federal law by abruptly rescinding its Borrower Defense Rule – set to go into effect on July 1 – which was designed to hold abusive higher education institutions accountable for cheating students and taxpayers out of billions of dollars in federal loans. On June 14, the Department announced its intent to delay large portions of the Rule without soliciting, receiving, or responding to any comment from the public, and without engaging in the required process.
