Update on Faculty Pay

I emailed Dottore's company today to determine if or when faculty might be expected to paid for the March payroll. Received quick response:

"The Receiver is continuing to work with the DOE to receive funds that we feel that we are due. This will help us complete this payroll. The student workers and administrative workers have been paid."

All is not completely lost, hopefully.

Receivers office is stating receivership has been extended? Anyone know if this is true since they are less than honest?

Sorry, I should have been more specific. Not from Nevada, and no longer working there. Was terminated in March and still waiting on final pay.

If you have not been paid in Nevada you can file a claim with www.labor.nv.gov. I heard that if you do not file a claim and everything goes into bankruptcy that you may not be able to file. Instructors file before May 31st deadline. Also you can quite a job for good cause. Not getting paid may qualify.

Real question: What does faculty, waiting on their last paycheck since March, do after the termination of the receivership?

Administration and Student workers have been paid - about $500,000 total

Dean/Exec unpaid - about $165,000

Leaving the unpaid Faculty - about $1.8 million

"A bit of truth with a bunch of lie. Devos thinks that some but less Federal regulation is needed! It would be insane to think otherwise."

Why, that's not true:

@YWw9toL-3mph Not need to push my opinion, the facts are a great place to start. Try reading from knowledgable sources that this mess has been exasperated by the DOE's weakening accountability of for-profits.

From the Brookings Institute -

Several recent regulatory actions by the Department of Education (DoEd) have weakened accountability systems that monitor the use of federal financial aid in higher education. The Department proposed to gut the “borrower defense” rule, which offered protections and debt relief to students who had been misled or defrauded by their institution; to rescind the Gainful Employment (GE) rules, which tied federal funding to programs’ ability to “prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation”; and to weaken rules governing distance learning and online education programs and allowing educational services to be outsourced to unaccredited providers.

A strong accountability system is necessary to protect the investments federal taxpayers make in students. Too many students and too much federal aid flow to low-quality educational programs that do not lead to degrees, or lead to degrees but not good jobs, and result in students incurring substantial costs and debts that burden them for years. A substantial body of economic research shows that institutions vary considerably in their quality and value, with some programs providing little economic value to students and/or resulting in poor financial outcomes. And accountability systems are demonstrated to improve student outcomes by limiting subsidies to low-quality institutions and redirecting enrollment elsewhere.

In response to the Department of Education’s rollback of accountability regulations, several prominent economists submitted comments to the Department describing the need for and benefits of strong accountability including Sandra Black of the University of Texas; Stephanie Riegg Cellini of George Washington University; David J. Deming of the Harvard Kennedy School; Susan Dynarski of the University of Michigan; Jordan Matsudaira of Columbia University; and Jesse Rothstein of the University of California, Berkeley argued that the Department’s recent actions and a large and growing body of evidence documenting the poor employment and financial outcomes that many students experience after enrolling at unregulated programs.

I guarantee that your source is a political rag or just plainly part of your political ideology. I know this because I have read it. The same source and writers that put out much of the BS here.

Government regulation was a part of this debacles beginning years ago. Its what started most of the problems in US education. Go ahead and keep blaming Devos. Just because you keep saying it does not mean that we that know better will suddenly believe it.

Devos thinks the Feds should exercise as little control as possible over the nation’s schools? Typical way of presenting a lie. A bit of truth with a bunch of lie. Devos thinks that some but less Federal regulation is needed! It would be insane to think otherwise. Much of that Federal control could and should be done away with. If it were, the law would be dealing much more effectively with impropriety in the system.

It’s been very clear that DeVos is making decisions based on special interests that are not at all taking into consideration the best interests of students. DeVos has led a rescue squad for the nation’s for-profit colleges. Step by step, she has dismantled Obama-era crackdowns on the industry. Critics say these schools, which enroll millions of students and range from small trade schools to large multi-state enterprises such as the University of Phoenix, prey on vulnerable students, leaving them with huge debts and questionable credentials. DeVos’ systematic rollback of regulations on these schools reflects the broader Trump administration agenda in support of for profit players. DeVos has long believed the federal government should exercise as little control as possible over the nation’s schools, and she has spent a large chunk of her tenure revoking past protections. Time to vote this bunch out !

And the employees who paid for their health benefits are not getting their hospital bills paid. I would say a lot of people are getting hurt and screwed.

Tell us how Betsy Devos and her for-profit supporters are making things much worse. The author of "Update on Faculty Pay" credits the DOE with being part of meeting the payroll. The process has been hamstrung in part by this lengthy litigation. Betsy is not the boogie man you think she is. Give her a respectful letter and her office a call instead of passing on the blame of what other haters would conjure up.

Why are people still getting paid if this is a dead horse?

There won't be any prison time for anyone. The money went to keep the doors open a few more months and the receiver was part of that problem. He had no idea what he was doing and DCEH helped put him into place. Student loans will be forgiven, the public will pay for the EDMC sale that should have never been approved or allowed by DOE. Betsy Devos and her for-profit supporters made things much worse. Like this site - there will be lots of complaints - but no one will be held accountable in the end. Every campus asset has been or is now being auctioned off. If you are owed money don't get your hopes up, it is a dead horse.
