Comments on Sunset Review of Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education

The California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education is undergoing a sunset review process this year. The Senate Business, Professions, and Economic Development and Assembly Higher Education Committees will hold a joint hearing to review the Bureau’s past performance, after which legislation to reauthorize the Bureau will be drafted. TICAS and partners submitted comments including recommendations to empower the Bureau to be more proactive in preventing student harm, allow them to create and enforce stronger minimum operating standards for schools and protections for students, and to expand the Bureau’s capacity to respond in the event of a school closure.
