    This marks the first time Zipper was the first to catch a clue!

    Good for the shareholders, or good for the customers. Choose one.

    I hope the Dean has EMT’s standing by for the heart attacks the students will have when they see what the costs for attending Walden will be next year.

    I’d wait to see who “profits” before i’d dare say much about Walden’s “new” setup. most likelye it will be "profits for the 1% and bills for the 99%.’ lol stupid propagandized 99%. Capitalism/Fascism American Style. a nice set up for those parasites that create Profit based Greed. as Margaret Thatcher said, “There is no such thing as Society.”

    Animal Farm and 1984, American Style

    Normally I’d agree with you but Zipper is the biggest parasite around. This is gonna be good!

    The “for profit” college model is the darling of conservatives. They have resisted Obama’s attempts to tighten the rules on which schools qualify for Federal grants & student loans.

    The “for profit” graduation rate is 22% For comparison, public colleges graduate 55% and non-profit private colleges graduate 65% of thier students.

    Don’t confuse corporatism (what we have now) with capitalism (ie a free market free of gub’ment control). Corporation exist because of and for the government. Corporations also benefit from government protections. For example, BP – the person or people responsible for the spill in the gulf will never be held liable because corporate charters, granted by the gub’ment, protect the individual. There are no corporations in a free market. Their may be partnerships, but individuals, not pieces of paper, are in charge and therefore individuals can be held responsible and liable. Profits, in a free market, are earned by providing good products and services, not by gub’ment subsidies and price controls.

    @Uncle Joe

    BTW, I had to laugh when reading that article. Republican Virginia Foxx lead the charge against regulating for profit schools. The University of Phoenix (9% graduation rate), was a big donor to her last campaign. So our tax dollars go to U of Phix, then flow back to their political allies.

    BTW, Foxx was also stupid enough to claim that the Civil Rights Act was passed by Republicans, “without very much help from our colleagues across the aisle.” (Waves to Ms. lma)
