ED Magedson – Founder
ITT Technical Institute168 N Gibson Rd Henderson, Nevada United States of America
I would not have sent the report, but found many complaints, including the ones regarding the disabled. My son is 29 years old and had a traumatic brain injury. I am not sure how he was contacted by ITT Tech, but he is now a student there and doing miserably. Just as others have said - he passed the proficiency exam. I have an associates and a bachelor's in accounting with a minor in criminal justice and and I can tell you that the material he is learning is way above his head. He keeps saying - oh but they will get me a job when I am done - yada yada yada. He wasn't even to fill out his own application and FAFSA - they did it for him!
I am encouraging him to quit and go to the Community College if he wants to continue. To their credit, ITT Tech has provided tutoring - which my son goes to just about every day. He is still not doing well and it's really affecting his self-worth. He does not drive, so he takes the bus and does a lot of walking. Because he has fused vertebrae in his back, his mobility is limited.
Bottom line is - they took advantage of him. He is on social security and medicad, so they know he is limited in ability. I would like him to quit and either get a break on the tuition or give more time to pay it back. My next step is to research and contact the agency that enforces the American with Disabilites Act.
