Massachusetts Sues a For-Profit
Massachusetts is suing Sullivan & Cogliano Training Centers Inc., charging it with false advertising, The Boston Globe reported. The state says that Sullivan & Coglian advertised that 70 percent to 100 percent of graduates found jobs in a medical office, when the actual figure is less than 25 percent. “For-profit schools are extremely expensive and heavily funded through federal student loans, so all taxpayers have a stake in this,” Attorney General Martha Coakley said in a statement cited by the newspaper. “If students do not receive these promised jobs and wind up in default, the students and taxpayers suffer the consequence while the schools continue to profit.” Sullivan & Cogliano did not respond to requests for comment on the suit.
