If you attended a for-profit school that engaged in fraud and live in @California , please consider sharing your experience with the California Sunset Review Committee - 4 committees from the California legislature that are reviewing the performance of the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). The BPPE is charged with the oversight of for-profit schools and protecting students like you from fraud. This committee needs to hear from former students, like you - your voice and your story is essential to ensuring that the BPPE does a much better job at protecting students in the future.
The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 16, at 9 a.m.
If you are interested, please testimony will be accepted via the teleconference line, 1-877-692-8957, access code 2426237.
We need as many students as possible to testify, including people who went to the Art Institute, ITT Tech, United Education Institute, Marinello Beauty Schools, etc. You will only have a few minutes to speak:
Please state your name and where you are from;
Explain what school you went to and how it lied to you;
Explain how that impacted your life;
The Bureau failed you. Ask the committee to vastly increase the funding for the Bureau so resources to protect future students from going through what you have experienced.
