FR Document: 2016-25427
Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request; NCER-NPSAS Grants-Financial Aid Nudges: A National Experiment To Increase Retention of Financial Aid and College Persistence

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, ED is proposing a new information collection.

This request is to conduct, in 2017, the “Financial Aid Nudges: A National Experiment to Increase Retention of Financial Aid and College Persistence” study, funded by the NCER-NPSAS grant, designed to measure the effectiveness of an intervention that will provide financial aid information, reminders, and advising to college students who were initially interviewed as part of NPSAS:16.

Valuable education tax dollars are shoring up the profits of testing companies and colleges while our public schools are failing to provide our children with an excellent education.

Each year concerned community members, parents, and students protest the governments lack of support for public schools while billions of education tax dollars are funneled to testing companies to gather information “to measure the effectiveness of an intervention that will provide financial aid information and reminders to college students” and to “provide financial aid information, reminders, and advising to college students.”

How can we, as a nation, in all good conscience, continue to allow “corpoliticos” to usurp our children’s education by funding the collection of information on adults while public schools are underfunded and failing?

We must, as a nation, call for an end to the financial support of higher education institutions until our public school system is fully funded to provide every child in America with an excellent education.
