An educational agency backed by Betsy DeVos just lost recognition for reportedly signing off on a fake college
asheffey@businessinsider.com (Ayelet Sheffey) 8 hrs ago

The Education Department on Wednesday cancelled its recognition of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges & Schools (ACICS) for approving a school that reportedly has no faculty or students, but received federal funds anyway.

USA Today conducted an investigation last year that found that although approved by ACICS, Reagan National University in South Dakota did not house any faculty, students, or staff. And while the agency said that Reagan had met its standards during the accreditation process, it declined to say specifically how it verified the college had students and faculty.

This caused the Education Department on Wednesday to remove ACICS's recognition, given its inability to deliver sufficient evidence as to why they accredited Reagan in the first place.

"ACICS's significant and systemic noncompliance with multiple regulatory recognition criteria leaves me no reasonable option but to terminate its recognition, effective immediately," Jordan Matsudaira, deputy undersecretary for education, wrote in a notice posted to the department's website.

8. Inner city schools are desperate for funding for classroom computers

... teachers' and administration salaries, building improvements, you-name-it.

Meanwhile Chump and DeVos threw so many millions of dollars away on this crap that didn't help anybody. It's just GOP cronyism of the highest order. There has to be malfeasance/corruption involved, and I hope someone is investigating.

9. Read the attached article.

Same people who were "operating" this "university" were running one in Northern Virginia. Virginia shut it down. They suddenly pop up in South Dakota. Total scam. It is suspected of being a visa mill. An operation set up only to get people visas to live in the US.
