Judge Partially Blocks Enforcement of Gainful-Employment Rule
June 29, 2017
The Department of Education defended gainful employment in court in March but earlier this month announced it would pursue a rewrite of the regulation along with the borrower-defense rule.
The judge ordered that the cosmetology schools be given more flexibility in filing appeals of earnings data and that the department must give those schools more time to file appeals. The order applies only to American Association of Cosmetology Schools programs and was written to avoid “upending the entire GE regulatory scheme.”
