The U.S. Department of Education's proposed gainful employment regulation will severely limit access and opportunity for students seeking career skills and training. Almost immediately, the regulation will cut off access for hundreds of thousands of students in thousands of programs.
The regulation does not focus on academic quality or lifetime earnings gained from education. Instead, it uses arbitrary metrics to evaluate programs. The result will disproportionally impact programs that serve minorities, veterans and at-risk students. It will also have an immediate impact on the ability of employers to access skilled employees.
A bill has been introduced in the U.S. Congress, H.R. 2637, the Supporting Freedom through Regulatory Relief Act, to stop the regulatory process before it harms students and employers. Take action today and send a letter to your members of Congress and the U.S. Department of Education telling them you oppose limiting higher education access and opportunity.
PSCUs open doors to many of the 13 million unemployed and 90 million undereducated Americans by providing a skills-based education. To remain competitive over the next decade, we must identify between 8 and 23 million new workers with postsecondary skills.PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
