Episode 4 - The Gainful Employment Debate Takes a Turn

The gainful employment regulations currently being negotiated with the Department of Education would hold only some schools accountable for their outcomes, disproportionately targeting for-profit schools. New data suggests that this is problematic for the vast majority of students attending all other higher education institutions. To discuss the new research and potential solutions, host Jason Altmire talks with Andrew Gillen, Senior Policy Analyst from the Texas Public Policy Foundation, who recently put out a comprehensive study on gainful employment (GE)

Jason and Andrew discuss the types of measures GE uses, how schools in all sectors would fare if the GE regulations applied to them, what the latest data says about the necessity for well-rounded accountability, and how this debate should move forward in the light of new information.
