Kentucky's Attorney General Sues Third For-Profit College

September 28, 2011

Jack Conway, Kentucky's attorney general, on Tuesday filed a consumer protection lawsuit against National College of Kentucky, Inc., a for-profit, for allegedly misrepresenting job placement numbers. Conway is leading a 22-state investigation of potential abuses among for-profits. He has also sued Daymar College for allegedly misleading students about their textbooks and financial aid and joined a whistle-blower complaint against Education Management Corporation over allegations of illegal payments to student recruiters, and he is investigating five other for-profits operating in Kentucky. The suit against National claims the college publicly displayed "significantly higher" job placement rates than the rates it reported to an accrediting agency. National has attempted to block the investigation, and has appealed a judge's ruling that it could continue.
