Jen asked me if those commercials were real and my only response was yes they probably were. I said they have thousands of students and one or two had to make it good and why not feature them.
Today as I was driving to work I heard a story on PBS how many of these schools are in danger of losing federal aid.
After months of delay, the Department of Education on Thursday issued new rules that could shut down some for-profit colleges and universities.
The department says the regulations are meant to cut off federal aid to schools whose students cannot earn enough to repay their loans. The administration softened the rules in response to industry pressure.
Before he announced the rules, Education Secretary Arne Duncan paid tribute to the important role played by for-profit schools, such as the University of Phoenix.
Ironically, there are many people who are out of work right now and it is logical that they head back to school to update their skill sets.
I think I'll go back to college and get a PHD and solve this little dilema.
