大家好,我叫times803, 四川籍,MBA在读。喜欢英语,也想学好英语,因此尝试听写、翻译V0A的节目。作为非英语专业人士,翻译肯定有很多纰漏,不过只想坚持,并与大家共勉。

This is the VOA Special English Education Report.

这里是美国之音特别节目的《教育报道》。

President Obama wants the United States to have the world's highest rate of college graduates. But his administration also wants stronger rules for colleges that operate for profit.

总统奥巴马希望美国拥有世界上最高比例的大学毕业生。然而,他的政府(却同时)也希望对盈利性高校加强管理。

Career colleges receive billions of dollars from taxpayers through student loans. The Education Department says some of that goes to waste and leaves students in debt for educations of little or no value.

职业院校通过学生贷款的方式从纳税人那里获得数十亿美元。教育署说,这些钱部分被浪费掉了,学生们身负债务却只获得很少或者没有价值的教育。

To receive federal aid, career colleges must prepare students for what the law calls "gainful employment" in a recognized occupation. Two tests are proposed to see if they do.

要获得联邦援助,职业院校必须让学生准备法律要求的被认可的“有偿雇佣”。有两项测试去检查这些学校是否履行。

One would measure the relationship between debt loads and how much students earn after they complete a program. The other would measure the rate at which all students repay their loans, whether they complete the program or not.

一项是测量他们的债务负担和他们完成课程之后所赚薪水之间的关系;另一项是测量所有学生偿还贷款的速度,不管是否完成课程。

Programs that fail these tests could be restricted or blocked from federal student aid.

测试失败的课程可能会被限制或者被阻止接受来自联邦的学生援助。

The Education Department says for-profit colleges and training programs are important. In two thousand eight they had close to two million students -- nearly three times more than in two thousand.

教育署说,盈利性高校和培训课程是重要的。2008年这些高校的学生数达到200万——比2000年多接近3倍。

Last year, the five largest received more than three-fourths of their money from federal student aid. And that amount did not include other forms of government aid.

去年,五所最大的盈利性高校超过四分之三的款项来自联邦的学生援助。并且该数目不包括其它一些形式的政府援助。

Yet officials say for-profit colleges may be less supervised than other schools. They also point to reports of highly aggressive marketing.

但是政府官员说,盈利性高校相比其它学校而言缺乏监督。他们也指出(这些高校)高度积极营销的报告。

For every one hundred graduates of for-profit colleges, eighteen fail to repay their federal student loans. That compares to five graduates of public colleges and universities.

100名盈利性高校的毕业生里面,18名不能偿还他们的联邦学生贷款。同比而言,公立院校则只有5名。

The department is now collecting public comments on a number of negotiated rules. Some would require career colleges to release their graduation and job placement rates. The goal is to publish a final rule by November.

教育署目前正收集许多有关谈判规则的公众意见。有人要求职业高校公布他们的毕业和就业率。教育书的目标是11月份公布最终的规则。

The Career College Association called the debt-to-earnings proposal unwise, unnecessary, unproven -- and unlawful. The group says it has found that students in higher priced programs are more likely, not less likely, to repay their students loans.

职校联盟声称该“债务对收入”的提案不明智、没必要、未经证实以及不合法。该组织说,他们已经发现,价格越高的课程的学生越可能偿还他们的学生贷款,而不是越不可能。

It says the move could eliminate programs serving three hundred thousand students. Female and minority students would face the most harm, it says, as they are more likely to attend career colleges.

据说此举消除了正为30万学生服务的课程。此外,女性和少数民族的学生可能面临最大的伤害,因为他们更可能进入职业高校。

The association also points to shrinking budgets for community colleges. Its president, Harris Miller, says "Students need more information, not fewer choices."

该联盟也指出社区大学的预算缩减。该联盟的主席Harris Miller说“学生们需要更多的信息,而不是更少的选择”。
