No press release about the above letter from the U.S. Department of Education.... yet.
Students at the ITT Technical Institutes throughout the United States had the opportunity to visit and meet with approximately 2,900 employers, elected officials and other dignitaries on campus in 2015.And yet it seems no employer is willing to speak up on their behalf to this web site.
"Our campuses are often hubs for employer activities and STEM-related (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) initiatives that allow students to discover all that ITT Tech has to offer," said Gene Feichtner, president and chief operating officer of ITT Educational Services, Inc.
ITT Tech campuses in 2015 hosted:
- 2,658 national, regional and local employers
- 2,719 visitors attending an employer, professional or community event
- 3,744 high school students and administrators for STEM presentations
- 866 graduates who returned to campuses as guest speakers or for alumni events
- 232 elected officials or their staff
New student enrollment in the second quarter of 2015 decreased 18.6% to 12,638 compared to 15,523 in the same period in 2014. Total student enrollment decreased 13.7% to 47,874 as of June 30, 2015 compared to 55,485 as of June 30, 2014.See their full report here:

...if you showed me a piece of red construction-paper, with your name written on it in yellow crayon,
it would have more credibility, longevity, and educational integrity, than your ITT Technical Institute diploma.
Can the end be near for ITT?
Many of you say, "Yes!!!"
In February of 2015 several board memebers sold off portions of their stock in ITT as noted in the

Several of you have been kind enough to send me links to various articles.
Here's a link to the source, ITT-Tech:
I am a former instructor at an ITT in Texas. This place is not a real school. Instructors are encouraged to lie about student's academic performance and attendance, when you don't and I wouldn't, problems occur.
I am an adjunct instructor at ITT Tech in Omaha, NE teaching my first course for them. I DO NOT PLAN TO RETURN! The instructional materials given to me were inadequate and the pacing is not realistic for the type of student that is enrolled there.

Not only does ITT cost more than their public school counterparts, it is also significantly more expensive than comparable for-profit colleges. For example, the cost of an Associate degree at ITT’s Clive, IA campus is $47,928. The same degree at Kaplan University in Des Moines, IA is $30,654, and the degree costs $10,290 at the Des Moines Area Community College. ITT’s Clive campus had a 54.7 percent withdrawal rate for students enrolling between 2008 and 2009.
Check with your local Attorney General to see if they are working on any legal action against ITT.

Also on this site: ITTs "Pain Funnel" illustrates four levels of pain with questions corresponding to each level. ... the "Pain Funnel" presents a number of questions that the recruiter can ask that are progressively more hurtful.
Awesome website! I wish I would have known what an awful place ITT is.
ITT used deceptive recruitment practices to lure students into enrolling (particularly low-income students and veterans) to receive their federal financial aid. These students then receive none of the valuable career skills for which they enrolled in the program and they leave with enormous amounts of debt.
Do not teach at ITT!
The company's "Pain Funnel" illustrates four levels of pain with questions the recruiter can ask which are corresponding to each level.
