Corporate Run Higher Education

I’m definitely not an expert in this, but I recently watch a program FRONTLINE: college, inc.  Here’s the link.  You have to check it out.  It’s very interesting.

It is a program that takes a look at for-profit higher education institutions.  It’s fascinating to see the difference between a corporation run higher education institution and one run by academia.  The corporate run schools are much more efficient and make a ton more money, but is that the most important thing?  At these places it’s not about the faculty, the research, or even the student.  The goal is profit, and you’re paying for it.

Whether you run a school or want to go to one, I think you might benefit from watching this program.
