Private for profit colleges–education not the first priority

“Led by Secretary Betsy DeVos, the Education Department has reversed an Obama-era crackdown on troubled vocational and career schools and allowed new and less experienced entrants into the field.”

And

“Ms. DeVos, who invested in companies with ties to for-profit collegesbefore taking office, has made it an agency priority to unfetter for-profit schools by eliminating restrictions on them. She also allowed several for-profit schools to evade even those loosened rules by converting to nonprofits.”

Medicynical note: It’s a crap game for students. They assume that schools mean educational opportunity, when in reality to the school the student simply represents revenue. The first priority of these schools is anything but education.
