All higher education institutions, regardless of tax status, should uphold their obligation to students by providing quality educations that lead to gainful employment in students’ fields of study. Making federal funds contingent upon institutions fulfilling this obligation is a commonsense consumer protection that will help students make informed decisions.
Secretary DeVos’ proposed national database of all higher education institutions, not just for-profit and career programs, is a more comprehensive approach to helping students make educated decisions about their futures. The “gainful employment” standard may be inappropriate for certificate programs in certain professions, such as salons, which are tipped.
