I am for these actions against predatory colleges, and make no mistake about it: all colleges are “for profit” even state owned. MHO

SFC (Join to see) I am very proud of him because he did not choose to let this injustice destroy his humanity or dreams of making another dream. We have to be very careful and this demonstrates why we should have support systems that we can turn to for advice and expertise. Thank you.

If "colleges" are peddling "BS" sheepskins, it seems to me that there is fraud and problems with truth in advertising. That certainly justifies criminal and civil liability actions against those involved in perpetuating the fraud and false advertising.

I can't read the article past the "pay" wall. From the headline and the fragment I am allowed to read, it seems that the actions are against the taxpayer. I do not believe that taxpayers should be required foot the bill for someone else's poor choices as a consumer.

SFC (Join to see) Exactly. I think the term "predatory schools" is a much better term to use to describe these types of issues and institutions. "For-profit" tends to be the go-to term that can shield traditional schools from their necessary shame and unrightfully blame modern schools for issues they weren't involved in.

There they go again. Thanks for the warning. Once upon a time, the law functioned (quite well) under the principle of caveat emptor (let the buyer beware). And if buyers were defrauded, the one who defrauded them would be forced to refund the purchase price as well as damages if any. There might even be punitive damages. Sadly, we tossed that for caveat vendor - let the seller beware - and business must proceed under the assumption of guilt. Even more insane, we have a court ruling taxo turum - let the tax payer beware. You financed a bad deal, now you pay for it.

[Note: Feel free to correct my Latin. That was just a guess]
