[WASHINGTON]–Today, the Department of Education announced new guidelines for managing the debt relief process for students of failing schools like Corinthian Colleges. Young Invincibles’ Deputy Director Rory O’Sullivan released the following in response to the announcement:

“We’re thrilled to see the Department of Education acknowledge that students unfairly taken advantage of by failing schools should be eligible for financial relief. The Department’s announcement today is a significant step toward justice for students of schools like Corinthian Colleges that have misled students about job placement rates and the quality of their programs for years. We hope that students at similar institutions with deceptive practices are eligible for the same relief.”
