More than 200,000 students say despite the promise of a job post-graduation from mostly for-profit colleges, they have nothing to show for it except mountains of debt.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos faced scrutiny from lawmakers on Capitol Hill for the Department of Education's implementation of a loan forgiveness rule aimed to help defrauded students called Borrower Defense.

"These students were misled and cheated and the fact that some of them may be making money doesn’t mean they weren’t defrauded," said Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, a Democrat from Oregon.
