Washington, especially Congress, has been on a bashing spree of the for-profit sector lately. I won't go into the details, as there have been plenty of headlines in the media in the past few weeks. Together with Zac Bissonnette, I describe how the recent crusade against the for-profit colleges is a red herring for a broken higher education system in an article for Forbes that was released yesterday.
We're not the first to suggest that the attack is misguided and highly politicized. Other articles on the topic worth reading include ones by Neal McCluskey and Lindsey Burke. Also, be sure to check out CCAP's recent report on for-profit higher ed, if you haven't already done so.
