Yesterday, the Department of Education used its power to impose new regulations and financial oversight on ITT Technical Institute  (ITT Tech), including prohibiting the chain of schools from enrolling additional students who use federal financial aid to finance their education. Christopher Nellum, Policy Director of Young Invincibles issued the following statement:

“The move by the Department of Education continues steady progress toward protecting students from predatory, for-profit institutions like ITT Tech and Corinthian Colleges. The Department’s decision will help  ensure that hardworking and committed students, who invest significantly in order to attend college, will no longer be harmed by deceptive practices. We commend the decision to prevent ITT from enrolling additional students with taxpayer dollars, and we are hopeful that students currently enrolled will have strong academic and financial options moving forward.”
