    It looks to be that some traditional liberal arts colleges have found their way into the administration’s good graces.

    I think they should either apply the 8% rule across the board on all institutions of higher learning or not at all.

  2. This is where the liberals’ true elitism shows through. Remember that special on PBS a month or so ago? “Most of these students shouldn’t even be in college,” etc. was said. In other words, they support the Old World idea that college should be for the lucky few, all at state-run institutions that can tow the offical government line…

    So, the Obama administration wants to put for-profit colleges out of business. While, at the same time, four year universities and even state-run community colleges are turning students down. What does that say about who they think should get an education?

    This is just another example of our current government wanting to take over everything. (They’re coming stunningly close already.) And what they can’t control – they’ll destroy.

    That is about as stupid a statement as I have read on this blog in the last few years.

    I agree with SuberSub. Also, if the feds are investigating he recruiting process of the for-profit schools they need to check traditional collages as well…they just want the tuition, too. They do not check how much debt students are taking. They do not guarantee jobs with income sufficient to repay the debt incurred to get the degree. Shame on them, too…

  5. Mike,

    I don’t know about that… The prospect of putting for profits out of business, and denying about 40 percent of all college students any chance at a college degree, is pretty harsh. What makes you think otherwise?
