Illinois For-Profit College Pays $10.25 Million Settlement to New York Attorney General To Settle Charges of Scamminess. Will Trump University Be Next?
The past couple years have not been kind to Career Education Corporation. The Illinois-based for-profit school is the fourth-largest in the nation; it operates hundreds of campuses across 23 states and 5 countries , and currently serves about 75,000 students. It also appears, if we can use a technical term, to be kind of bullshit. New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced yesterday that CEC would pay a $10.25 million settlement , after a two-year investigation found that the school had wildly exaggerated its job placement rates to lure in new students.
The face of quality, non-bullshit education.
