Advocates Urge CARES Act Congressional Oversight Commission to Monitor Funds Going to For-Profit Schools

With the for-profit industry’s track record of deceiving and abusing vulnerable borrowers, the organizations are demanding diligent oversight of how this money is spent. The diverse coalition of organizations signed on to the letter represent consumers, civil rights, labor, government oversight, and students.
