Scott Walker budget would remove oversight of for-profit colleges - Jessie Opoien | The Capital Times

A proposal in Gov. Scott Walker's two-year budget would likely make Wisconsin the only state without oversight of for-profit colleges, at a time when many others are ramping up their level of supervision over colleges that face heavy scrutiny throughout the nation. "I don't know of any other state that would not have some kind of vetting of for-profit institutions," said David Dies, director of Wisconsin's Educational Approval Board. Walker's budget would entirely eliminate the EAB, which has overseen for-profit schools since the passage of the G.I. Bill in 1944 — then as the Governor's Educational Advisory Committee. It's been known under its current name since 1968.
