For-Profit Colleges Experience Major Enrollment Drop

August 18th, 2011

 

 The Chronicle of Higher Education has a balanced  analysis of the enrollment decline in for profit colleges. Some of the numbers are jaw dropping- over 40% for Kaplan and Phoenix. Is this a sea change or temprary phenomena? My hunch is that it is temporary because there are large cuts in public postsecondary spaces. Hundreds of thousands have been cut in California alone. See the link below for the story.
