Press Release

We represent a group of student, veteran, consumer, civil rights, and higher education advocates focused on ensuring that higher education students in California are protected from predatory schools and have access to high quality education that does not leave them with unmanageable debt. We recognize the significant consideration and effort involved in the sunset review of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (Bureau), and that the COVID-19 crisis may prevent the Legislature from considering relevant issues and proposals in full. However, because the crisis itself increases the need for robust oversight of private postsecondary education, we urge you to move forward immediately on two specific, targeted reforms that will better position the Bureau to protect Californians during the crisis.
