Stand with AG Maura Healey to fight Betsy DeVos

This petition had 474 supporters

With no public input, Betsy DeVos is trying to gut commonsense rules that protect students from getting cheated by predatory for-profit colleges.

Sign this petition to stand with Attorney General Maura Healey in her fight to stop DeVos from hurting the students she is supposed to protect.

Here’s the situation:

  • For years, predatory for-profit schools have been ripping off students who borrow to pay for school and end up with a worthless degree.
  • Just 12 percent of students attend for-profit schools but they account for 50 percent of all student loan defaults.
  • Taxpayers have been stuck paying hundreds of millions to for-profit schools and their executives, while the students are left high and dry.

 Betsy DeVos wants to block rules that would:

  • Shut down access to federal loans for schools that cheat students
  • Let students to sue schools that have defrauded them.
  • Allow students to apply for loan relief if they get cheated.

Send a message that Betsy should stop siding with the likes of Trump University and finally stand up for students.

Let’s keep this rule in place: hold fraudulent schools accountable when they cheat students and taxpayers. It’s up to us to stop Betsy DeVos.
