CCA President, Board Members Speaks at Department of Education Hearings

On October 8th, the Department of Education hosted in Washington, DC the fifth in a series of hearings across the country to determine the concerns regarding the implementation of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) and determine how to structure the negotiated rulemaking process. Several dozen representatives from a wide variety of interests, including trade associations, education-focused companies, the recording industry, and career colleges, spoke to the panel and to the audience about their particular hopes and concerns for the negotiated rulemaking process. These interests run the gamut from distance education to 90-10, cohort default rates to transfer of credit, campus security to campus network copyright infringement, and many others. Among the career college representatives were a number of CCA members who testified about the impact of the new legislation on the career college sector and what they would like the negotiated rulemaking committees to consider, including Susan Saxton from Laureate Higher Education; Mary Durell from Career Education Corporation; Elaine Neely from Kaplan Higher Education; Mark Pelesh from Corinthian Colleges; Richard Them from Education Management Corporation; and Nancy Broff on behalf of ITT.
