“Four former recruiters for the Academy of Art University in San Francisco are accusing the private art school of defrauding the government out of millions of dollars in financial aid by using illegal tactics to get students to apply,” the San Francisco Chronicle reports. “Suing in federal court, the ex-employees say the art school used an illegal compensation scheme – adjusting their pay up or down based on how many students they registered and dangling trips to Hawaii as an incentive – then lied to the government about it to collect millions of dollars a year in financial aid.”
