NSLDN Statement on Introduction of the PROTECT Students Act

Today, NSLDN President Aaron Ament commented on the introduction of the PROTECT Students Act by Senators Dick Durbin and Maggie Hassan:

"We thank Senators Durbin and Hassan for their leadership in bringing these important issues to the forefront. The PROTECT Students Act would be a huge step forward in holding schools accountable and ensuring that students receive the quality educations they deserve. It would help prevent veterans and servicemembers from being targeted by predatory for-profit schools, would ensure that career colleges set up their students for success, and would give student borrowers harmed by fraud and abuse the power to enforce their rights under the Higher Education Act."
