Several large veterans organizations on asking the federal government to "crack down on colleges that prey on veterans by charging exorbitant fees for degrees that mostly fail to deliver promised skills and jobs," The New York Times reports.

The organizations in letters sent to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs call on the department to improve oversight over colleges receiving millions in funding the G.I. Bill, but engage in deceptive recruiting by misrepresenting programs and job placement performance.

Organizations calling for tighter scrutiny of colleges benefiting from the G.I. Bill include the American Legion, the National Military Family Association, the Military Officers Association of American and nearly 20 other groups.
