Interesting article titled “Not a School for People Like Them”
“When I teach my undergraduates at my elite, private school they all recognize the for-profit college ads I play to introduce the idea of higher education stratification. I ask them why they did not apply to Everest or Strayer when they were applying to college. They tell me that it’s not a school for people like them”.
That is quite a statement!
Other than access to contacts, what do you think are the advantages of going the elite route? What do you think are the advantages/disadvantages of the for-profit route? What is best for today’s non-traditional student?
Hope you all chime in.
