Education Corp. of America on Wednesday announced the closure of all of its campuses, including Brightwood College locations in Van Nuys and Riverside, as the company grapples with financial and accreditation challenges.
ECA, one of the nation’s largest for-profit college operators, runs 25 Brightwood Colleges. But the closures extend well beyond that.
