Durbin: Help students avoid disaster at hands of for-profit colleges

Illinois Senator Dick DurbinIllinois Senator Dick Durbin is reaching out to teachers statewide, urging them to help their students avoid financial problems caused by for-profit colleges/career centers.

In his annual letter to Illinois teachers, Sen. Durbin provides information teachers can share with students to help them avoid financial disaster due to student debt resulting from the costs of attending an unscrupulous for-profit school.

Durbin specifically asks that teachers inform students of the Gainful Employment rule, a federal regulation designed to ensure that schools prepare students for careers that will allow them to pay off debt incurred by attending the institutions.
