CREW: Department of Education: Regarding Meetings with Interest Groups and Wall Street

On March 31, 2011 CREW sent a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Education seeking copies of the calendars of former Deputy Undersecretary Robert Shireman and current Deputy Undersecretary James Kvaal. Both Mr. Shireman and Mr. Kvaal have played key roles in Education’s regulation of the for-profit education industry and questions have been raised about whether each has had inappropriate contacts with outside interest groups and Wall Street investors.
