For-profit schools feeling legal pressure

One recent suit claims Harris School of Business officials routinely misled students and falsified records

For-profit schools may be a growing trend in the education community, but one new lawsuit seeks to increase the scrutiny on for-profit schools that may be scamming their students.

Kelli J. Amaya, a former administrator at the for-profit Harris School of Business, has filed suit against Harris and its parent company, Premier Education Group, for fraud. Amaya and a group of former employees claim that school officials routinely misled students about job prospects and falsified school records to keep students enrolled in order to collect the more than $10,000 in tuition and grant money the school charged.
