NYT: DeVos’s Education Dept. Stalls Probes into For-Profit Schools

HeadlineMay 15, 2018
H5 education department stalls fraud probe in for profit schools

The New York Times is reporting that a special team within the Education Department tasked with investigating fraud at for-profit colleges has been virtually eliminated, ending probes into for-profit schools where members of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s team previously worked. Among the investigations that has ground to a halt is one into DeVry Education Group. Last year, DeVos named a former dean of DeVry as the supervisor of the team tasked with investigating this company and other for-profit college operators, including Bridgepoint Education and Career Education Corporation. Former employees of both those institutions also now work for DeVos at the Education Department. Betsy DeVos has previously invested in firms that own for-profit colleges.
