The Feds and Students vs. Taxpayers

Wall Street Journal - Opinion Piece

March 7, 2016

Jorge Klor de Alva & Mark Schneider write: The department expedited closed-school discharge claims from approximately 40,000 students at Corinthian’s closed Heald College. By December, the department was estimating that 85,000 additional Corinthian students may be eligible for relief under the rule. Education Department data show that the first 5,814 closed-school discharge claims approved for former Corinthian students came to about $75 million. If 85,000 more students are granted relief, taxpayers may face a bill for over $1 billion for this institution alone.
