Teachers Union Sues Betsy DeVos Over Loan Forgiveness Program
The American Federation of Teachers union sued Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Thursday, alleging the department has mismanaged a federal program that grants teachers and other public service workers loan forgiveness after they make 10 years of payments. About 1% of the more than 73,000 borrowers who have applied for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program have been granted relief since the program was created in 2007, according to department data.
