"The Department of Education on Monday released the names of 16 negotiators and their alternates who will look to reach agreement on a new gainful-employment regulation," according to Inside Higher Ed.
"An Obama administration regulation, the gainful-employment rule was written to hold career education programs accountable for producing too many graduates not making progress paying off their student loans.
The department released the first gainful-employment data in January, showing a wide disparity in performance between public and for-profit institutions. But in June Betsy DeVos said she would launch a negotiated rule-making process to overhaul the regulation."
