GAO launches another investigation

Most already know about the first GAO investigation and GAO for-profit videos and now it appears there is a second investigation. 

There is a signed letter at Carreercollegecentral by Senator John Kline, Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Training Virginia Foxx, Carolyn McCarthy, Glenn Thompson and Alcee L. Hastings that was sent to Comptroller General Gene Dodaro about the new GAO investigation. 

From the letter:
“We also learned GAO is currently working on a second investigation involving the proprietary school sector,” the letter says. “We were pleased to hear the original team that handled the initial report is prohibited from participating in the second investigation.”
(note:  this is because of the softening of the final GAO report issue)

Interesting timing and I assume the for-profit industry is keeping a close eye on their enrollment and admissions teams.
