Return of National Comparison Data to College Scorecard Website

Return of National Comparison Data to College Scorecard Website

  • Post category:In the Media

Last week, the Department of Education (ED) removed important data from it’s College Scorecard website without seeking public comment and without regard for impact on student ability to make informed decisions. The data that was removed is particularly important for servicemembers who use the GI comparison tool in order to make decisions about education.

Daniel Elkins, Executive Director of VEP said, “If we want Student Veterans to make smart choices with their GI Bill Benefits with this change The Department of Education is standing against us and not with us.”

We are calling on the ED to return National comparison data to the website immediately. Read the full press release.
