Record numbers of Americans are turning to higher education to give them a stronger edge in the job market. One of the fastest growing—and most controversial—sectors of the higher-education industry is for-profit colleges and universities. In this video clip from College, Inc., students will learn about the aggressive marketing of for-profit colleges, concerns about their enrollment practices, and how the debt load for students at for-profit schools is often more than twice that of those at traditional schools.

1) How do federal grants and loans benefit both students and for-profit schools?

2) Why do many graduates find it difficult to repay student loans?

3) Do you feel the for-profit schools that arrange for these loans are partly responsible for the problem? Explain.

4) For-profit institutions say they provide a valuable service to low-income and adult students that traditional higher education has given up on.  Do you agree or disagree?

5) Critics of for-profit schools say such institutions use high-pressure sales tactics to recruit students, provide easy access to federal financial aid, load them with debt, and leave the taxpayer stuck with the bill.  Do you agree or disagree?

  • Producing Natural-Sounding MIDI Notes
    When making electronically-produced music, you’ll find yourself often programming notes rather than playing them. People who don’t understand the medium will say that this makes the music cold, mechanical and lifeless, but they simply don’t understand the amount of work and craftsmanship that goes into manually arranging notes. A composer needs to take into […]
