While the closing of I-T-T Technical Institute campuses in Lexington and Louisville has left students in the lurch, a consumer advocate says the closures are ultimately a good thing. The for-profit technical institute closed all 130 of its for-profit schools last week, leaving 35-thousand students in limbo. The move came after the U-S Department of Education banned I-T-T from accepting new students with federal education loans. Whitney Barkley-Denny with the nonprofit Center for Responsible Lending says I-T-T’s priorities have been questioned for years.
