U.S. Department of Education staff are recommending the agency terminate its recognition of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, a move that would require the institutions it accredits to find a new accreditor or else lose access to financial aid. In a report published Friday, the department said the embattled college accreditor hasn’t met key oversight requirements that aim to ensure quality evaluations of schools.  The recommendation will be discussed at a meeting of the department’s accreditation advisory group next month, and a formal decision will follow.
