For-Profit College

Here’s an infographic we saw over at the Washington Post derived from Senator Harkin’s report summed up by ProPublica that gets right to the heart of the matter in three simple acts: For-profits are a massive business, they cost students more, and conclude with a summary of the money trail.

Greetings,
It would be great to update the numbers since 2009. A lot has changed in 3 years. It’s also worth mentioning that community colleges and public colleges/universities are taxpayer-subsidized. For-profits are not, so of course tuition costs more. This also leaves out the fact that for-profits tend to educate adults and the demographics are completely different from “traditional” schools that educate mostly 18-22 year olds. You have to compare apples to apples, and this graphic does not do that. For-profits do a better job than community colleges at graduating adult learners.
