I work at a community college in Pennsylvania. I've seen many people who have taken courses at proprietary schools only to find out that their diploma is worthless for finding a job.

On the other hand, I am also aware that one of the schools with the highest track record for employment after graduation in the area is a for-profit art school.

I think it's safe to say that there are good schools and bad schools.

JRA, while I appreciate and enjoy all comments here, it would be a little more forthright of you to tell us your name. With regard to "substantiate your reasons" I think the statistics from Sen. Harkin's committee are pretty specific and pretty damning of the for-profit record in higher ed.


Sorry, you are just wrong. Since you don't bother to substantiate your reasons - I won't mine. Other than to say, that these institutions, that often provide education in non-traditional ways (that stodgy institutions of higher learning fail to do)... therefore democratizing education.
