DOD and VA are enabling for-profit colleges to prey on servicemembers, veterans, and their families

DOD and VA have systematically shirked their oversight of subprime colleges that target servicemembers, veterans, and their families, especially during the Trump Administration.

Instead of exposing poor performing schools that get DOD Tuition Assistance, officials in 2018 decided that protecting these schools from a “witch hunt” was more important.

  • In 2019, DOD continued to protect even the worst 50-100 subprime schools from public scrutiny.

  • VA Office of Inspector General reported that $474 million had been inappropriately allocated to subprime schools, but I have seen no attempt to claw back the money for US taxpayers.

  • Purdue University Global, one of the worst schools for misleading consumers, has faced no consequences for their unethical behavior as they targeted servicemembers in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Times, as well as social media.
