Unlicensed career and vocational training schools in New York that prey on unsuspecting students will now be under closer scrutiny.
A new law gives the state department of education more authority to make sure the schools are using approved instruction methods and are properly licensed. Terence Zaleski Director of the Coalition of New York State Career Schools says the number of unlicensed facilities has fluctuated depending on the economy and what careers are hot.
“There are a lot of good protections in this legislation which enhance the quality of education at schools throughout New York State there are additional resources that will allow the state education department to better serve our schools which will enable us to better serve our students.”
Zaleski says it has been 20 years since legislation affecting this sector has been changed.
