An investigative article in The Indianapolis Star examines the sales and operating practices of The College Network, which provides online learning materials and tests to help students prepare for equivalency exams to earn college credit. The newspaper's investigation finds scores of consumer complaints against the company, with adult students complaining of high-pressure sales tactics that resulted in significant debt, as well as the company's ties to a loan collection agency. A spokesman for the company challenged some of the newspaper's findings in written answers to a reporter's questions.
