What a mess!!

Was reading on another group, yet another student in the program just gave up and left.
After wasting 2 plus years and $30,000 spent, just got tired of the NOT FLYING on a regular bases.
There are currently students (Nov 2019) that are at risk of being dropped out of the program because the school has not be able to fly them enough to meet a cut off point/lesson plan . Being past the voluntary drop out point now, they would forfeit their semesters tuition.
Surely that's not legal? Any student with a semi-competent lawyer would win that case case ten times out of ten.

I did my PPL in 8 months at a local flight school (evenings and weekends) at the age of nearly 40. Surely a college can do it quicker with a full time program?
