MADISON (AP) - State officials who regulate for-profit colleges urged Republican legislators Wednesday to drop plans to eliminate their board, warning that without it the industry will become a free-for-all in Wisconsin. Donald Madelung, chairman of the Educational Approval Board, told the state Senate's workforce development committee that if the board vanishes out-of-state for-profit colleges will swoop in and operate with next to no oversight. "They will see the state of Wisconsin has let its guard down," Madelung said.
