“Gainful Employment” Means “Lossful Education”

Sorry to coin an awful word such as “lossful,” but in this case it fits. I wish to associate myself with Tim’s excellent post below about the Obamites advancing what he calls a “toxic” rule to undermine private, usually for-profit colleges. In addition to Tim’s history of excellent reports on this subject (and Renee’s), Mark Hyman has done several on-target pieces on the same subject. It’s also worth noting that this is not a typical, right-vs-left battle. As The Washington Times noted in an editorial, Marc Morial of The Urban League has joined a number of other left-leaning outlets in denouncing the administration’s outrageous policies. Mr. Morial told me the rule “would have disastrous consequences for those who are at greatest risk of a life in poverty if they don’t obtain a college education.”

As Linda Chavez wrote, “Shouldn’t the Education Department devote its resources to expanding opportunities for Americans to receive schooling, not restricting them?”
