LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A public interest group wants the Legislature to examine the practices and performance measures of for-profit colleges operating in Nebraska.

The U.S. Department of Education has accused some for-profit colleges of predatory practices, including fraud in some cases.

Nebraska Appleseed said in a report Monday that more information is needed to determine whether the colleges operating in the state are “engaging in problematic practices that have been discovered in other areas of the U.S.”

Nebraska Appleseed says tuition costs at Nebraska’s for-profit colleges are nearly seven times higher than that of community colleges and twice as high as the state’s public college and university system.
