On December 23, 2011, President Obama signed H.R. 2055, the “Consolidated
Appropriations Act”, into law (Click here to view the entire statute). In so doing, Congress and the President approved a provision that will deny access to all Federal student financial aid to individuals without a high school diploma, a GED or without equivalent homeschooling after June 30, 2012. This effectively eliminates Title IV student loan and grant eligibility for all ATB students after this date.

We like to submit a request for reconsideration of this law. Depriving individuals who do not have HS Diploma or GED from post-secondary education opportunities would have adverse effect on their long-term prosperity. There are many people without HS Diploma or GED who have the aptitude and determination to pursue post-secondary education, but that they have not obtained their GED or HS Diploma.

This law has to be reversed…It will have incredible negative impact on both vocational schools and thousands of individuals who can not move on without Government funding without passing the ATB..

Please reconsider…

Cannot believe that his country is not helping those ATB students. Nobody knows the circumstances of why those students could not complete their high school education. These are mostly minority students and our president is sending a message that nobody should care about them or their future. Why not let these students at least try at getting a college education. I could have expected that from a Republican president, but not about a supposedly Democrat President. What a disappointing President we have. Come next election I will definitely vote Republican just so that Obama goes out of the White House.

I agree with this ruling. When schools were allowed to enroll ATB students there was no urgency to encourage students or provide the appropriate resources to help them study for and obtain their GED or High School Diploma once they were enrolled. In fact a large percentage of employers require it before they are even considered for employment. Some applications for certifications or licensure specifically state that you need to have a GED or High School Diploma. So we let the students that fell into the ATB category attend school for 8 to 9 months, incur all this debt and attend Externships for employers that require a High School Diploma or GED……how did we help?? Why do we have high schools if they don’t play a roll in the next step to furthering your education….
