According to the AP, the Federal Trade Commission sued the for-profit DeVry University alleging false advertising. DeVry is settling the suit by agreeing to pay $100 million.

DeVry claimed in ads that 90% of its graduates who sought employment got jobs in their field within six months of graduation. False claim!

Some charter schools make claims about their programs that don’t match reality. Just wondering… Should the Federal Trade Commission investigate the marketing practices of the Ohio charter industry?
