  • The various governments throw multi Billions of our dollars at these places and students graduate with degrees in the following.

    Africana studies
    American Indian Studies
    American studies
    Anthropology
    Art
    Asian studies
    Chicano & Latino studies
    Communication studies
    Comparative literature & classics
    Dance
    Film arts
    History
    International studies
    Italian studies
    Journalism and mass communication
    Latin American studies
    Library
    Liberal studies
    Medieval studies
    Music
    Philosophy
    Political science
    Recreation & Leisure studies
    Russian & east European studies
    Theatre arts
    University library
    Women’s gender & sexuality studies

    Now I am not saying that ANY of the degrees are bad, I am just saying that if and when someone gets one of those degrees, you do not make all that much money in your field if any at all. Take like a degree in Philosophy, in the brochure at Cal State Long Beach it stated that there is about a 1% chance of getting a JOB in Philosophy, and usually it’s a JOB in TEACHING Philosophy. But yet the governments will pay for that degree with state funds and federal Pell grants and Stafford loans. But they give COCO static teaching skills like health care, business, computer tech, auto mechanics, HVAC, electricians, plumbing, etc. Teaching skills that are needed and in which one can make some coin.

  • In an briefing call yesterday, a senior Department of Education official appeared to distance the agency from claims that it had intentionally caused the shutdown of a major for-profit college.

    After Corinthian Colleges announced in June that a financial penalty imposed by the Department of Education had placed it in danger of immediate collapse, observers and analysts were quick to credit the government with intentionally moving to shut down one of the sector’s most troubled colleges. The government “knew exactly what it was doing” when it cut off the cash-strapped company’s access to loan money, one analyst claimed; a Bloomberg story said the penalty showed the department had at last “found a way” to “rein in for-profit colleges.”

    But on yesterday’s call, which reporters participated in on the condition they not name the officials speaking, a senior education official said the department did not intend to shut down Corinthian and did not know what would happen when it imposed a 21-day delay on Corinthian’s access to federal loan money. “We did not know the cash situation,” said the official, who would not be identified by name. “We had no foreknowledge that this would be the reaction.”

    The Department of Education had to make clear it had not intentionally shut down the school in part because of its fraught history with attempts to regulate the for-profit industry, said Ben Miller, a senior policy analyst with the New America Foundation. When the department tried in 2011 to impose regulations that would shut down programs at poor-performing for-profit schools, it was accused of colluding with Wall Street short-sellers that benefited from sharp drops in stocks at for-profit colleges. An audit later cleared the department of wrongdoing, although some Republicans called for a further SEC probe, and a former top official with the department is still under federal investigation for illegally sharing information with an advocacy group.

  • Finally, as many of you know there are 7.5 million of our common shares currently being held in escrow related to the Lexington merger.

    As of the date of this call, the criteria investing of these shares were not met and the shares will be retired on July 1, 2014, which will reduce our shares outstanding by 14% to 42 million.
