Description

The story looks at the federal campaign contributions that representatives of the nation's for-profit trade schools made to the lawmakers who sit on the House of Representatives Committee on Economic and Educational Opportunities, which sets the government's policies on these schools. Records provided by the Federal Election Commission indicated that between January 1995 and October 15, 1996, individual trade-school officials and the political-action committee of the Career College Association, which represents trade schools, had contributed $133,000 to these lawmakers. The donations were especially heavy because the 105th Congress will renew the Higher Education Act. (November 8, 1996)
