It will come as no secret to any domainer that education domains are among the highest sort-after domains.
The main reason is the money that private for profit online schools are paying for lead generation.
However yesterday the South Florida Business Journal reported that the Attorney General of Florida, Bill McCollum has opened an investigation into 5 for-profit universities.
A spokesman for the Florida AGsaid its economic crimes division in Fort Lauderdale is investigating Kaplan Inc., the University of Phoenix, MedVance Institute, Everest College and Argosy University.
“The AG’s website said the allegations being investigated include “misrepresentations regarding financial aid, alleged unfair/deceptive practices regarding recruitment, enrollment, accreditation, placement, graduation rates.”
If either state or federal governments come after these for profit schools in a dramatic way it could well effect the education domain market.
Its something to keep your eye on if you have or are looking to acquire education domains.
