The Atlantic: For-Profit Colleges’ Students Wind Up Earning Less Than If They Had Never Enrolled.

I expected this. I’ve told the story of the young lady, who worked for a client of mine. She spent all her time trying to underline that she had “college level” Powerpoint skills, gained at one of the for-profit colleges. After a few encounters, and trying to truly understand how a university or college could require Powerpoint skills, I mentioned and showed Lynda.com. She was somewhat gobsmacked. The justifications increased, however, as the insecurity rose over her investment; pity and sympathy kept me civil through the relationship. Very difficult for the folks who were sold a pig in a poke.
