Computer School Is Worthless, Students Say

TACOMA (CN) - The Business Computer Training Institute recruited the homeless, the brain-damaged, people outside welfare offices, and willing students, taught them "no marketable skills," burdened them with debt, lied about its former "students'" success, and "graduated" them whether they showed up or not, while BCTI collected government aid for the fraud, a class-action complaint claims in Pierce County Court. Students also sue BCTI owner-directors Morrie and Linda Pigott and Tom and Faye Jonez. See complaint.
