Hispanic Leaders Education Concerns

WASHINGTON -- The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL), has released its statement in reaction to the US Department of Education's Proposed Rules governing gainful employment. NHCSL members, mindful of the need for educational options for all students, call for further study of the rule's detrimental effect on Hispanic students. On behalf of the National Caucus of Hispanic State Legislators, Illinois State Senator Iris Y. Martinez made the following statement:

"The Department of Education's just-released proposal for a "Gainful Employment" rule is concerning, in its potential to cause career-focused, driven students to lose out on educational opportunities from ineligibility for Title IV financial aid. Through the proposed rule, access to college for minority students in this country may, in fact, shrink, rather than expand.

We join in Secretary Duncan's recent statements calling for careful consideration of the good actors in the private higher education marketplace – and for development of a policy that weeds out those under serving already vulnerable students. We fear the current rule may be overbroad, and, in making up to 55% of private programs ineligible for aid, may have unintended, harmful consequences."

Recently, the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL) passed a resolution calling for the Department of Education to reconsider the Gainful Employment policy. NHCSL members are deeply sensitive to the need for universal access to college and opportunities for success. Therefore, members ask the Department of Education to carefully consider the adverse consequences the proposed rule would have on a student's opportunities for education.
