Judge deals setback to DeVos’ handling of student fraud claims

************************

Why does this matter? We need to protect our youth from predatory schools, lenders, etc.  As an educator, I’ve seen young people attend for- profit colleges, only to end up with staggering loans and an education they could not use. Worse, some were enrolled at colleges that closed, yet they still had major student loan debt.
We can do better; it harms us all to have youth crushed by student loans with no way to pay them.
