Kentucky's Attorney General
Sues For-Profit College
Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Kentucky Jack Conway recently filed a consumer protection lawsuit against National College of Kentucky, Inc., a for-profit institution, for allegedly misrepresenting job placement numbers. The suit against National claims the college publicly displayed "significantly higher" job placement rates than the rates it reported to its accrediting agency. National has attempted to block the investigation, and has appealed a judge's ruling that it could continue.
In addition to the suit against National College, Conway also has sued Daymar College for allegedly misleading students about their textbooks and financial aid. He is leading a 22-state investigation of potential abuses among for-profit institutions, has joined a whistle-blower complaint against Education Management Corporation over allegations of illegal payments to student recruiters, and is investigating five other for-profits operating in Kentucky.
