After feeling he had no choice but to close the doors of the school his parents founded in 1992, ACT College president Jeffrey S. Moore fights for change and for rights for all students in the nation’s career colleges
April 10, 2012, Arlington, VA —Jeffrey S. Moore explained today why the for-profit vocational school his parents founded in 1992, ACT College, was required to close its doors on April 3.
“We feel terrible for the 361 students who were enrolled, and the 54 employees on our payroll,” says Moore, who been president of ACT College since 2002. “We have always been focused on the students. We tried desperately to keep the school open, but could not overcome the Department of Education’s refusal to reimburse the school for money it had earned for teaching the students since December 2011.”
Moore’s attorney, Gerald Ritzert of Ritzert & Leyton in Fairfax, VA, indicates that the total being withheld is $1,444,974.
