- WASHINGTON (AP) A federal court has ruled that the Education Department violated privacy laws with regard to students defrauded by the Corinthian for-profit college chain.
- In a break with Obama administration policy, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced in December that some students cheated by the now-defunct schools would only get a part of their federal student loan forgiven.
- But a California district court ruled late Friday that the departments use of Social Security Administration data in order to calculate loan forgiveness violates the Privacy Act.
- But critics slammed the new rule as unfair since tens of thousands of Corinthian students have already received full loan discharge under the Obama administration.
- The administration spent $550 million to fully forgive the loans of tens of thousands of students.
