This Issue Brief examines the history of schools that rely on misleading advertising and recruiting to enroll veterans and eligible family members and subsequent ban by Congress in 1974 based on contemporaneous findings of investigations of predatory schools. We outline that despite numerous law enforcement settlements with schools, many of them chain-owned, over deceptive advertising and recruiting since enactment of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) continues to not enforce the ban passed forty-five years ago.
