It was an obvious headline when, not days into his Presidency, Biden started the process of revoking ACICS, the notoriously lax accreditor of last resort favored by many for-profit colleges. ACICS is so bad, they handed accreditation to a college that did not exist – one with no teachers and no students. Obama killed ACICS; Trump brought them back. Now, Biden has them marked for disbandment again.

But before that, days before Biden took the oath, and largely overlooked in the news, a legal challenge was filed by Xavier Becerra, the Attorney General of California. His suit should have received at least as much notice as Biden’s ACICS action.
