APSCU’S GUNDERSON SENDS LETTER TO CONGRESSIONAL EDUCATION LEADERS

Washington, DC, August 17, 2015 – APSCU president and CEO Steve Gunderson sent a letter to the leaders of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, and the House Committee on Education and the Workforce to highlight the latest example of overregulation and conflicting policies that exist in higher education.

Gunderson’s letter detailed the American Bar Association (ABA) decision that “long-term employment” will be defined as a position that lasts a year or longer and pays at least $40,000 a year and notes under this new policy, “graduates that meet this standard will be deemed a success by the ABA. If that was the end of the issue, it would be fine. But there are three private sector law schools that appear to meet the ABA’s standard based on data provided in the Department of Education’s gainful employment 2012 data tables, but will fail the Department’s gainful employment regulation – essentially shutting down the program.”
