“We are glad to see that the agreement reached between Corinthian and the Department of Education will keep the doors from being shut on 72,000 students who are in the midst of earning their degrees and certificates. As the two parties work out the next steps, we hope they keep in the mind the best interests of the students, who have already invested time and resources in their education, and make every effort to ensure they are able to complete their programs.”
