Comment on FR Doc # 2021-11120 (“Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Public Hearings”)
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Education Department’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the regulations governing programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. This comment is submitted on behalf of the Center for American Progress.
We applaud the department for committing to advancing equitable outcomes for all students. This is a gravely important undertaking at a moment when the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the existing inequities in this country and has prevented so many members of our society from pursuing economic mobility through higher education. Also crucial is reversing regulations put in place by the previous administration to weaken oversight of colleges that offer low quality programs or take advantage of students in order to access federal student aid dollars.
