Wright Career College will end up stiffing most of the students it took advantage of

In 2014, the Humphrey, Farrington & McClain law firm, in Independence, began assembling complaints from students who had attended Wright Career College.

The stories eventually assembled were typical of persons who have enrolled in any of the profit-seeking schools that exist to rake in grants and loans available to low-income students. Most of the law firm’s clients had borrowed tens of thousands of dollars and put their lives on hold, only to find that the credits and certificates they’d earned at Wright campuses in five cities were worthless in the job market. They talked about chaotic classes, unqualified teachers and expenses they weren’t told about until it was too late.

The one lesson that predatory schools such as Wright Career College teach very well is that justice can be hard to come by. That point was driven home last week in a hearing in a bankruptcy court at the U.S. District Courthouse in Kansas City, Kansas.

In part because of looming fraud and misrepresentation lawsuits, Wright Career College filed for bankruptcy last April. At the urging of a federal judge, lawyers for its owner began negotiating with attorney Ken McClain and his firm on a settlement to provide some sort of redress for 264 students who had sued the school.

2. Unfortunately with Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education

it is more likely that we will see a resurgence of private vocational schools to scam the taxpayers and students.
