Steve Gunderson, President and CEO of Career Education Colleges & Universities, today applauded a judge’s ruling that President Obama's Department of Education failed "to consider various categories of relevant evidence” in reviewing ACICS. “All we have ever asked for is due process and fairness,” he said. “This ruling makes clear the process used in revoking ACICS recognition was not complete and fair. We now hope the current Secretary will recognize the need to work with ACICS, the schools impacted by this ruling to find a path that keeps students in school and on their way to achieving career skills.”

Last year, speaking on a panel at a higher-education symposium in my role as president of Career Education Colleges and Universities, I said that higher education had transformed itself, but I went on to suggest that the failure of the federal government to update its policies — especially the Higher Education Act — limited the ability of all educators to fully seize this moment.
