Letter to California Legislative Committees Regarding Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education and COVID-19 Response

In the wake of COVID-19, students will need protection from predatory programs more than ever before. The California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education is scheduled to undergo a sunset review process this year, but given the legislature’s limited time and capacity it is unclear what the reauthorization process will look like. TICAS and partners submitted comments urging the legislature to prioritize oversight of for-profit colleges as part of the COVID-19 response, and to include two high priority policy changes in any reauthorization legislation passed regarding the Bureau in 2020.
