ITT Technical Institute announced Tuesday it is closing its 130 sites nationwide.
“The actions of and sanctions from the U.S. Department of Education have forced us to cease operations,” ITT’s parent company, ITT Educational Services Inc., said. “We reached this decision only after having exhausted the exploration of alternatives, including transfer of the schools to a nonprofit or public institution.”
