Statement on Federal Student Loan Relief Announcements

January 13, 2017
Statement of Pauline Abernathy

We applaud the U.S. Department of Education for the announcement on January 13, 2017 that thousands of former students defrauded by the defunct American Career Institute in Massachusetts will receive the full, automatic federal student loan discharges they deserve. We commend Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey for uncovering the illegal practices at this and other predatory schools.
