The Trump Administration Is Canceling California's GI Bill Approval Power, But The State Is Fighting

There's a knock-down, drag-out brawl being waged right now in the world of college financing. On the surface, it's about the future of veterans' education and which schools are allowed to accept valuable GI Bill payments. On a deeper level, this is a fight for the survival and prosperity of the troubled for-profit college industry.
It's a complicated situation, so buckle up.
WHO ARE THE PLAYERS?
California has an office that works to protect military veterans from predatory for-profit colleges that leave students with junk diplomas and a mountain of debt. It's called the California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education, or CSAAVE, part of the California Department of Veterans Affairs aka CalVet.

2. Keep in mind that our wonderful Secretary of Education

thinks that predatory for profit schools are just dandy.

5. I am so sick of this administration

fucking over veterans. Yet, everytime that draft-doding, chicken-shit coward, Cadet McClusterFuck MushroomDick wants to look tough, he trots out active duty or veterans for a photo op. We are nothing but props to him.

FIGHT THIS, California. FIGHT IT TOOTH AND NAIL.
