Poll Question: Are for-profit colleges fulfilling an unmet need or are they bilking students out of their money?

Before responding, you may want to check out the PBS documentary Colleges, Inc. , which covers for-profit colleges.

I do want to add something about the PBS documentary. While I do think it provides accurate information, I think it's a little one-sided. It doesn't show any success stories of graduates of for-profit schools. There are success stories. It's a good documentary, but, like everything, we have to use our critical thinking skills when watching it.

Lobbyists Aid for-profit schools

In considering this issue, you may also want to read this article. It mentions a graduated student who is satisfied with her for-profit education. Article: Lobbyists Aid for-profit schools
