And the jokes just keep on rolling along from the Feds….

Yes, the US Department of Education is back in to the rulemaking business and now they have decided to try to force States to create a process to review every institution offering education to their residents.

I’m sure this topic will be debated in the courts long before it makes its way to being required.

Here are some of the latest stories floating around on the topic:
