Statement of the United States Department of Education in response to the ruling of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in APSCU v. Duncan

The court clearly upheld the authority to regulate college career programs, but found that the Department had not provided enough explanation of its debt repayment measure, so it has given the Department an opportunity to address that concern.  We are reviewing our legal and policy options to move forward in a way that best protects students and taxpayers while advancing our national goal of helping more Americans get the skills they need to compete in the global economy.
