One of America’s largest teacher’s unions and the Department of Education (ED) announced a settlement on a key loan forgiveness program used by public service workers. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) hailed the “landmark settlement” in the case of Weingarten v. DeVos — originally filed in July 2019 and titled after the AFT President Randi Weingarten and former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — as an agreement that will “hold the federal government accountable for its failure to manage the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.”
