In a letter to Rep. Brett Guthrie (Kentucky’s 2nd Congressional District), the organization lists its priorities for Congressional reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, which guides the regulation of all colleges and universities in the U.S. whose students receive federal financial aid.
The correspondence reads, in part: ” We believe strongly that a level playing field must be established and preserved for all education providers regardless of their tax status…Protect(ing) the ability for veterans and service members to use their earned benefits at the college or school of their choice… and preserv(ing) and expand(ing) student aid for quality and effective career education programs as short as eight weeks in length, to promote more agile training sector responses to current and emerging workforce shortages.”
