Statement on Corinthian Colleges Closure

April 26, 2015
Statement of Lauren Asher

It is unconscionable that Corinthian was still enrolling new students and receiving taxpayer funding until just a few days ago, given the problems that have been evident for years. The federal government, states, and accreditors need to be much more aggressive in holding schools accountable. The message needs to be clear that no school is too big to fail, and that students who are harmed can count on much-needed relief.
