After receiving over 200! letters, the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education has revised its last set of proposed regulations. The grievance community is upset and will demand that the Governor reverse the revisions. The fight for reason and sanity is not over!
Join Robert Johnson and Kate Carey as they work through the changes, and meanwhile, keep sending those letters. The latest comment period ends Sunday, February 28. This is not over and schools must be engaged to ensure a fair and equitable outcome.
