Kaplan, For-Profit Schools Are Focus of Florida Probe

The Washington Post Co.’s Kaplan unit and four other for-profit colleges are being investigated by Florida’s attorney general for possible misrepresentations about financial aid, recruitment and accreditation.

The civil investigation was initiated after consumer complaints and the U.S. Government Accountability Office issued a report for a U.S. Senate hearing in August about for-profit colleges, Ryan Wiggins, a spokeswoman for Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, said yesterday in a phone interview.
