California Agency Recommends Changes To Oversight Of For-Profits
"California's Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) wants the state's government to devise criteria for determining which for-profit institutions are most at risk for having questionable business practices," Inside Higher Ed reports. "In a newly released report, the agency said state regulators should exempt most for-profits that hold regional accreditation from their reviews, freeing up resources to conduct targeted oversight. Possible factors that could be used to determine which institutions need extra scrutiny could include 'school ownership, types of programs offered, track record of operation in state and performance criteria,' the report said."
