Working to advance students' rights to educational opportunity and to ensure that higher education provides a launching point for economic mobility.

It's been a busy day at Student Defense —but never too busy to not join the hundreds of students in Washington, DC taking part in the #ClimateStrike. Here's our Litigation Director @rothschild_eric advocating for a world where all of our students have a shot at economic mobility. https://t.co/vnwJBATIQY

@PHEAAaid The Assistant AG of MA, whose office is suing @PHEAAaid for failures to properly administer the PSLF program, tells Congress @usedgov should seriously consider financial penalties for the company and whether they should even be considered in future contract bids. @MassAGO https://t.co/d350rYsjzA

WATCH: Public school teacher Kelly Finlaw told Congress how she was cheated out of the public service loan forgiveness she deserves. We are proud to represent @AFTunion in this lawsuit against @BetsyDeVosED, and are fighting to demand justice for every teacher waiting for relief. https://t.co/LoAX6UgNR1

@PHEAAaid The crux of our lawsuit is simple: Secretary DeVos has ignored the litany of lies and misrepresentations made by the loan companies her Department contracts with, and thus, oversees. It is her job to fix this. More on our lawsuit can be found here: https://t.co/FVV1oej3lO https://t.co/Swt4LeEEky

.@PHEAAaid, the loan servicer that handles the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, decided to play hooky and not show up to the Congressional hearing they were summoned to. Kelly remarks that if she did the same thing at the school she teaches at, she would be fired. https://t.co/16xhc7Bz71

Kelly tells future PSLF applicants what she would do differently—cover your own back in a program that was meant to have her back. https://t.co/7Q9J9B1DGm

Kelly repeats as straight forwardly as is possible: "I did everything my student loan servicer told me to do to qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness...I did it for 10 years." The result? Keep watching for what is likely not a surprise. https://t.co/rNAKAaO8f0

"If the PSLF program wasn't meant for me, a teacher who loves her job, pays her bills, and comes from a family where taking out loans are her only option, who was it meant for?" After only 1% of all applicants were granted forgiveness, we're left asking the same question. https://t.co/FhgM1uw3WD

[MEDIA]: Our lead plaintiff in @AFTunion's lawsuit against @BetsyDeVosED reminded the country why a bipartisan Congress created the PSLF program to begin with. Kelly represents the best of our values—it’s time @usedgov did right by her and all of our nation's public servants. https://t.co/N2mvyX90dz

We could not be more proud to represent @AFTHigherEd in our lawsuit against @BetsyDeVosED. DeVos has ignored the lies & misdirection deployed by servicers under contract w/ & overseen by her dept. We believe ED has an obligation to remedy this harm done to our public servants. https://t.co/gzpiMlJvLp
