Student Defense & Project on Predatory Student Lending Call for Increased Transparency from Department of Education Ahead of Rulemaking

Today, Student Defense and the Project on Predatory Student Lending sent a letter to U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona calling for increased transparency ahead of the Department of Education’s Negotiated Rulemaking process, which begins next Tuesday. The letter highlights sorely outdated public information available on the Department’s website — some information dating back as early 2015 — and notes that this information is critical to the public’s ability to comment and advocate during the rulemaking process. The advocates call on the Department to update its website and ensure it provides current information to its rulemaking committee ahead of deliberations.
