Coakley hosts hearings on for-profit-school regs

Posted 1/13/14

BOSTON – Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office held two hearings this month to gather public testimony regarding proposed regulations that enhance consumer protections governing the for-profit and occupational school industry.

Coakley’s office is also accepting written comments through a Web portal at www.mass.gov/ago/regulations.

“Our office has raised significant concerns about the for-profit education industry across the country, and these comprehensive regulations will help put the right protections in place for prospective students in Massachusetts before enrolling,” Coakley said in a statement.

In November 2013, Coakley filed the proposed amendments to existing state regulations to better protect students from potentially unfair or deceptive practices. The new regulations would require all for-profit and occupational schools in Massachusetts to provide accurate information to the public, prohibit misleading advertising practices, and address what she called “unfair” lending practices.

In 2013, Coakley also took action against two for-profit institutions in the state: the American Career Institute and the Sullivan & Cogliano Training Centers Inc. •
