National Black Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Harry C. Alford expresses disappointment with the Administration's decision to move forward with harmful "Gainful Employment" regulations. As students, teachers, employees, businesses, and higher education institutions warned, the unintended consequences of the rule will be devastating to millions of underserved minority students who rely on for-profit colleges and universities to obtain the education and training they need to pursue careers that will further their and their family's lives. This will have an adverse effect on our youth whose talents will not be utilized in our society. These are sad times in education.
