Seriously, why do people dislike for profit schools? Give me a good reason. As a graduate of UOPX, I've had a pretty successful career, making roughly 150k per year.
-for-profit school operate more efficiently
-financial competition encourages the schools to seek out better qualified teachers
-market operations governing the school promote effective decision- and policy-making
* Increased Competition. To gain fees and attract students, for-profit schools are encouraged to offer quality educational programs and produce successful results.
* Responsive to Clientele. For-profit schools treat families as customers. Thus, each school must adapt to the needs and desires of its student population.
* Encourages Innovation. As with any business, a for-profit school benefits from offering new products. This induces for-profit schools to experiment.
and if anything help with public education
So does anyone have any GOOD arguments against for-profit schools? I just don't see the negative aspect of them.
For those who say that for-profit schools only care about how much money is made and not the quality of education, take a good look at public schools and tell me that they care more about education than getting students in so the government can give them money. Why else are students with say 2.3 gpa's getting into schools?
