I suspect there is a secondary motive here, the science teacher was also the teachers' union representative and had been dealing with disagreements with administrators over updating the employment agreement. His suspension removed him from those discussion. Source and quote:

Schiller, 43, also was the teachers union representative on the campus and had been dealing with disagreements with administrators over updating the employment agreement under which the faculty works. His suspension, with pay, removed him from those discussions.

From page 43 of the actual report (and not a report of a report of the report):

While across the ecosystem, 44% of jobs do not require a Bachelor’s degree, the majority of tech jobs in tech industries require some degree of education. With a Bachelor’s degree, and in some cases, an Associate’s degree, many opportunities exist within the New York City tech ecosystem.

So, what does compliance involve? That's the first question we should be asking.

No, the first question we should be asking is why regulators are targeting these specific companies and not going after companies that provide 2-3 day training seminars that frequently cost the same amount.

If you're charging someone $15000 for a 10 week course

My spouse's employer recently paid that amount for a 2 day SAP course, and I'm pretty sure CA regulators are not going after the company providing the SAP course.

cultiv8 (1660093) writes "The Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE), a unit in the California Department of Consumer Affairs charged with licensing and regulating postsecondary education in California, is arguing that 'learn to code' bootcamps fall under its jurisdiction and are subject to regulation. In mid-January, BPPE sent cease and desist letters to Hackbright Academy, Hack Reactor, App Academy, Zipfian Academy, and others. Unless they comply, these organizations face imminent closure and a hefty $50,000 fine. A BPPE spokesperson said these organizations have two weeks to start coming into compliance."
