Reports that the U.S. Department of Education is quietly shutting down investigations into possible fraud committed by for-profit colleges caught the attention of New Jersey’s new Democratic attorney general, who offered to finish the probes himself if the agency won’t.

Grewal was appointed by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, who took office in January after eight years of … [Read more...] about New Jersey to probe fraud at for-profit colleges if U.S. doesn’t

The Education Department has in recent months largely dismantled a team charged with investigating abuses by for-profit colleges, The New York Times reported Sunday. The investigative team was created in 2016 to look into widespread fraud claims against for-profit colleges. Roughly a dozen investigators and lawyers were later added to the unit. The Times reported that the team now consists of three employees, who focus mainly on student loan forgiveness applications. The investigations into for-profit colleges have largely come to a stop, according to the report. Multiple former Education Department employees told The New York Times that members of the investigative unit had pushed as recently as this year for its work to continue.
