Gainful employment rule upheld by DC judge - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

The for-profit college industry has lost a second round in the battle over the U.S. Department of Education’s gainful employment regulations. The New York Times reports that U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates in the District of Columbia ruled Tuesday that the department has a right to require colleges to prove their graduates make enough to pay back their student loans in order to be eligible for federal student aid dollars. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, the lawsuit was the highest hurdle preventing implementation of the regulation, but lawmakers still could block the rules by refusing to fund the department's enforcement of them.
