Description

A whistle blower in the Education Department was punished for his efforts to show how a college with a dubious track record of safeguarding federal student aid funs was allowed to continue disbursing money to its students. The article describes how federal investigators were examining whether top political appointees at the Education Department had retaliated against Arthur L. Hardwick for complaining to the department's Inspector General about their failure to punish Jordan College despite findings that the college misspent Pell Grants. Mr. Hardwick alleged -- and the department's Inspector General agreed -- that political pressure from Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) kept the college in the student aid programs.
