Digital academy in the US isn’t safe anymore. 

The National Digital Academy (NDAA) is an industry-funded consortium that provides quality education to millions of Americans, according to a study by the Institute for Education Policy Research. 

It is a voluntary organization that, in many ways, functions like a government school, where graduates receive a college degree, and can go on to pursue a career in the public sector. 

However, the NDAA was created by Congress in 2012 to create a digital academy that would be available to all Americans. 

“The NDAA is an outgrowth of the Great Recession, and it has failed to meet the needs of millions of students,” said Shelley Vohs, an adjunct professor at the New York University School of Law who served as an NDAA consultant in 2012. 

She continued, “While the NDDA’s mission is laudable, it is a sham.” 

The NDIA was created to give students an education that was more than a high school diploma, Vohd explained. 

A majority of the students enrolled in the NDIA’s programs received a certificate of completion, which was the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree. 

For those who enrolled, it was the best that they could hope for. 

But it didn’t always go to plan. 

In 2016, the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommended that the NDPA be removed from the US Department of Education, the federal agency that funds colleges, universities, and high schools. 

NIST and the US government have since changed their minds, however, and the NDAs program has been restored. 

Vohs and the other experts who spoke to Fox News said that the situation is very much in flux. 

Many students who enrolled in NDAs programs have graduated without even receiving a certificate. 

And the schools and universities that have been supporting NDAs students have been facing financial losses. 

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the NDAs average annual revenue per student has been $10,958 since it began in 2020. 

While that’s a small number, it’s still a significant number when you consider the $1.3 trillion annual industry in digital education that is now worth an estimated $12.6 trillion. 

There are also a number of states that have recently banned the NDs from operating schools, while others have restricted their ability to enroll students. 

Meanwhile, the Trump administration is considering the possibility of instituting a cap on the NDIs’ funding. 

If the NDias funding is restricted, students would no longer be able to take the courses offered by these schools.

 In the meantime, students have begun to complain that the programs have become obsolete. 

Some NDAs have had to shutter and shut down altogether. 

 In April, a former student at the school, who had been studying computer science, told the New Hampshire Union Leader, “I was one of those students that got the ND in college. 

I got a degree in computer science. 

After I graduated, I was unemployed. 

Now, I can’t even go to a library.” 

In a statement to Fox, NDAs parent company, the Digital Education Association, said that it supports all of its students and supports all institutions that work with the ND’s.
