Kaplan rollout exposes un-Purdue-like actions.
On its face, Purdue University's acquisition of Kaplan University can be good for students.
Purdue, part of the Big Ten and a major research university, has long-standing traditions of academic excellence. One would expect they would impose those high standards on Kaplan, a school with a long track record of poor academic quality and other problems that my organization, Veterans Education Success, has been monitoring for a while now.
Veterans Education Success has received complaints from nearly 100 veterans and service members who say Kaplan misled veterans and service members about the university's accreditation, the transferability of Kaplan credits, the quality of Kaplan's programs and the career prospects of Kaplan's graduates.
