Woz U started with a grand promise from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to revolutionize tech education without plunging students into debt.

Wozniak announced the opening of the coding school in 2017, and despite the lofty promises, Woz U immediately had problems — namely that it didn’t have approval to operate. Now, the school is giving up its license by May 1, 2020.

Rachel Leingang of The Arizona Republic has been following the short-lived Woz U, and she joins us now to explain what happened and what this means for students.
