Post-secondary education and career training options should help one succeed. There are a lot of options in Massachusetts, but they are not all equal. Some of these post-secondary education and career training options are risky and may be harmful instead of helpful.  For-profit schools are often the riskiest option because they use Deceptive Education Business Tactics. The Attorney General’s Office has thus created an outreach initiative-- Eliminate D.E.B.T.

As part of the Eliminate D.E.B.T. initiative, staff from the Attorney General's Office offer free presentations, training, and additional information about this topic. You may also request materials for distribution. Please submit a request by emailing:
