I saw this title today and was bothered about something:
“For-Profit College Will Pay Up to $2.5M to U.S”.
Now the very short article is talking specifically about “American Commercial Colleges” however, the way the title reads seems more like a dig at all For-Profit schools.
It is not unusual for some people to get a lot of their news information from just the headlines, but the trouble is the headlines need to be a clearer. There are a lot of good players in the education industry, and a For-Profit college is not inherently bad. As someone who has benefited from non-traditional education, I feel that what I learned is highly relevant and applicable in today’s market.
American Commercial Colleges got dinged, not the whole For-Profit industry so let us be clear on how we report the news.
We want to set a good example do we not?
