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

Our Work

Our focus spans the entire student lifecycle, from recruitment to educational quality to completion to student loan repayment

@tnhabash This is precisely why litigation is an important tool in the fight for open government. People who use FOIA have grown far too accustomed to unjustifiable redactions. Our lawsuit with @weareoversight forced the release of unredacted emails. #transparency

$16 million of federal student aid funds went missing. Months have gone by. We continue to fight in court for our former Argosy student clients. And STILL NO ANSWERS from @usedgov or the Dream Center. Now we all learn this: https://t.co/1fCrqMik6e

We filed a class action lawsuit against the Dream Center for making false and misleading statements about its accreditation status. It’s time to forgive the loans for the student who were lied to. https://t.co/1fCrqMik6e

Thank you to @ACEducation for hosting us today for this first-of-its-kind convening. In the wake of widespread school closures we thought it was important to bring together stakeholders to talk best practices for transcript and student records preservation. #DefendStudents https://t.co/WJL0josizN
