Clare McCann was quoted in Politico's Morning Ed on borrower defense relief:

“They’ve made it almost impossible for borrowers to meet the misrepresentation standard by requiring them to demonstrate the intent of the school especially when students don’t have the power of discovery” to examine the inner workings of a school, said Clare McCann, deputy director of higher education policy at New America, who worked on the Obama-era policy. "They took every dial and dialed to the far extreme. It really tries to make [the regulation] as useless as possible.”
