Prostitution? Education Dept probes accreditor who OK’d massage school

At the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Minnesota regulators said they found "a topic of prostitution and / or human trafficking."

WASHINGTON – The Department of Education plans to review an accreditation agency that approved a college suspected of being involved in sex trafficking after a USA DAYS INVESTIGATION showed connections between massage schools and the illegal spas.

The American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine remains accredited, meaning its students can take out federal student loans or Pell grants. That Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has approved the college’s ability to receive federal money.

This is despite the fact that the Minnesota Office of Higher Education last year found that Roseville, Minnesota, for-profit college had a “theme of prostitution and / or human trafficking.” The state agency quickly ordered the school to close or find a new owner. The college chose the latter and is preparing to begin its fall semester. Its new owner disputes the findings of the Minnesota regulators.
