Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been threatened with the possibility of jail after a judge deemed she was violating a court order for continuing to collect student debts on a now-defunct school.

That ruling, handed down in June of 2018, was made by U.S. Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim and prevented DeVos and her Department of Education for going after former students at the bankrupt Corinthian Colleges Inc.

The article goes on to state the following:

However, Kim said she was “astounded” to discover that DeVos was violating the court order at a hearing in San Francisco on Monday after a filing by the Education Department earlier disclosed that more than 16,000 former students at Corinthian College “were incorrectly informed at one time or another … that they had payments due on their federal student loans.”

“I’m not sure if this is contempt or sanctions,” Kim reportedly stated. “I’m not sending anyone to jail yet but it’s good to know I have that ability.”

      No, it doesn’t work that way – consumer protection does exist and in this case the “schools” per the article were predatory, were basically fake schools defrauding those they scammed. Stop trying to defend crooks and screw their victims.

      There are laws as well as court orders that were violated here. There’s a lot of explaining that needs to be done but Devos gets paid extremely well to do her job. Rather than get upset because laws were passed to make the injured parties whole why don’t you funnel your anger at things like Hillary flagrantly ignoring the law at least 30,000 times by not only refusing to turn over her emails but also compounding it further by destroying evidence and conspiring to cover her crimes up (which is just the tip of the iceberg). Maybe the public should be demanding the law be applied justly and that Hillary share a cell with DeVos.

        Very good point. The article didn’t explain that the students were given fraudulent educational information. Under those circunstances, they shouldn’t have to repay the money.

    I say anymone who doesn’t want to pay their loan back is fine, you don’t pay you get all your college credentials stripped, you pay you keep them. Easily fixed.

    How can students from one college not have to pay their loans back? My kids did, so should everyone else.
