With #negreg happening now, I am curious has anyone recently modeled 90/10 if applied to all colleges?
How does the model and pass rate change if Pell were doubled?
Looking to my smart research and economist friends for help.
On Friday #NegReg wrapped up their conversations covering certification procedures and the 90/10 rule https://bit.ly/3rHh68R
Happy Monday! Updated drafts of the four proposals that reached consensus during fall #negreg are now available online. I'll post the direct links in the thread. 1/6 https://www2.ed.gov/policy/highered/reg/hearulemaking/2021/index.html
#4profit colleges charge on average more than 4x the tuition of their community-college counterparts, which often means students have to take out increased debt. No wonder #4profits don’t want #gainfulemployment rules. #negreg #defendstudents
New op-ed with @kgsouthern, reminding you that student demographics are not the reason why #4profits fail #gainfulemployment. Rather, these colleges are failing their students. #negreg https://www.chronicle.com/article/for-profit-colleges-are-not-allies-of-hbcus
#GainfulEmployment is on the table this week at #NegReg. @TICAS_org explains why students need this rule: https://ticas.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Why-Students-Need-a-Strong-Gainful-Employment-Rule.pdf #defendstudents

Students deserve better than to have programs putting them into unmanageable debt. Taxpayers deserve better too. We need these baseline protections in place. #negreg #defendstudents (5/)
