So many folks assume ITT Tech was corrupt from the bottom up...ignoring the fact that there were many solid performing campuses with staff that truly cared about their students, and did their absolute best under extraordinary circumstances.
Please don't demonize everyone that worked at ITT...but place the blame firmly on Kevin Modany, the corporate staff, and the board of directors. They long ago could have worked with the states and the DOE to resolve the issues (Look to Capella Education Company as an example of how to partner with the DOE and come out stronger). Instead, Modany thumbed his nose and the Board of Directors stuck their heads in the sand, while the schools reputation went into the gutter.
Truly, the point of no return for ITT Tech happened this last January when Kevin Modany (and the board agreed) rescinded his decision to leave the company. Only under new leadership would the company have have any possibility of regaining credibility with the government.
