In the past four months, we have taken steps to help move the company forward, President, Chairman and CEO Steven H. Lesnik said. The company-wide independent review into our placement rate practices, ordered by our Board of Directors, has been completed. We have reported to accreditors what we should; implemented extensive corrective measures to address any issues found; and have now closed the door on the review.
While we expect a challenging business and reputational year ahead, we have put a new strategy in place to deal with our current challenges and position ourselves for success beyond 2012. Its time for Career Education to reinvent itself for the future and resume a leadership position in higher education, Lesnik said.
