Following today’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss, Career Education Colleges and Universities president and CEO Steve Gunderson released the following statement:
“Today’s ruling is not surprising, but it is disappointing as it will only create further confusion for students and schools regarding many different issues. The Judge correctly stated that “this is not the first (and presumably not the last) chapter in a dispute about the fate of regulations.”
Steve Gunderson, President and CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities, criticized the U.S. Department of Education for their failure to complete final rules on Borrower Defense and Gainful Employment by the November 1, 2018 deadline.
“At a time when the nation desperately seeks skilled workers, career education desperately needs stability in regulations and operations. The Department’s announcement that they will fail to meet the November 1 deadline only imposes greater chaos and uncertainty on the very schools whose sole purpose is to provide career education skills,” said Gunderson.
