Alexander opposed to 'gainful employment' rule, federal ratings system - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Chair Lamar Alexander (R-TN) opposes the two key education initiatives President Barack Obama plans to push through before the end of his second term. National Journal reports that, at its education forum, Alexander said he would try to stop a college ratings system through legislation if it were to be implemented because he doesn’t think the Department of Education has the capacity to run it. Alexander also thinks the gainful employment rule is too complicated and vowed to block it in favor of a simpler law that would apply to all colleges, giving them some responsibility for repaying loans students acquired to fund their degrees, according to the article.
