Statement on Education Department’s Recommendations for Strengthening Student Loan Borrower Protections

October 1, 2015
Statement of Lauren Asher

A report from the U.S. Department of Education takes a comprehensive look at where student loan borrowers need more protection and moves the conversation forward on many important fronts. We strongly support the report’s goal of better protecting borrowers with both federal and private loans, through administrative actions when possible and legislative changes when needed.
