Profit Colleges Sell ‘Risky Education’ To The Most Vulnerable

Cottom worked as an enrollment officer at two different for profit colleges, but quit because she felt uncomfortable selling students an canada goose outlet location education they couldn’t afford. Her new book, Lower Ed, argues that for profit colleges exploit racial, gender and canada goose outlet buffalo economic inequality.Though for profit colleges hold out the promise of a better future, Cottom notes that the credentials they offer tend to be 30 to 40 percent more expensive than the same credentials from a nonprofit public institution. What’s more, she says, students at for profit institutions often drop out before completing their degree, which means many students are left mired in debt and with canada goose outlet florida credits that are not easily transferable.”The system that we’ve come canada goose outlet new york city to rely on to increase access to higher education to the most vulnerable among us really only compounds their poverty and their risk factors,” Cottom says. “That’s the exact opposite of what higher education is supposed to do.”On what the canada goose outlet trillium parka black enrollment process was like when she was working at a for profit collegeThe process starts with the first phone call. So when you see those ads that say, “Call 1 800 such and such to change canada goose jacket outlet uk your life today,” when you call that number someone like me would answer on the other line. And the first thing we would do was to try to get as much of your contact information and your demographic information as possible, because we needed to know how to find you.Once I had gotten that information, my next goal was to get you to visit the school as quickly as possible, and I mean in the next 24 to 48 hours.. To sign up for school, they had to physically sign what we called an enrollment agreement. So having them physically there removed all of the barriers to them not signing up..Once that decision [to enroll] had been made, all of your other decisions were made for you.. We ordered all of your books; we handled all of your financial aid paperwork for you; we ordered your high school canada goose outlet london transcripts canada goose outlet eu for you. The process from the point of contacting someone like me at the technical school to the first time you could show up for the first day of class was, on average, about two weeks. It’s a pretty rapid process and part of making the process rapid was to have someone like me holding your hand throughout.On why for profit colleges are more expensive than nonprofit collegesThe only way they have to generate revenue or profit is from tuition. So canada goose outlet store canada goose outlet new york if you’re a financialized organization or a corporate shareholder owned, for profit college that canada goose outlet orlando relies on tuition growth to generate your profit, the only way you can do that is to keep increasing costs. So they tend to peg the tuition costs to the fully allowable amount that students are allowed to borrow from the federal student aid program.On when she started to feel conflicted about working at a for profit collegeFor Profit canada goose victoria parka outlet Colleges: Targeting People Who Can’t PayWhen I canada goose outlet locations in toronto saw relatively poor and low income students deciding canada goose vest outlet to take on both [federal] student loan debt and private student loan debt and inviting in their family members to cosign on additional loans so sort of spreading their risk around into their social networks so that they could afford this education I really started to ask whether they could ever afford it at all. Should they have been there if they had to go through all of those steps to afford the tuition?On what happens when students drop out of a for profit collegefor profit colleges really aren’t set up to transform these students’ lives in the way that we think higher education is supposed to do.Debt has made our choice of higher education options far riskier than they were 20 or 30 years ago. And in the for profit college sector that’s especially acute because those students are more likely to be poor or low income or sort of dancing along the line canada goose outlet canada of poverty.. Because of that, for profit colleges really aren’t set up to transform these students’ lives in the way that we think higher education is supposed to canada goose outlet london uk do..What we see in the for profit college sector is those students drop out with more debt, making it harder canada goose outlet nyc for them to return, especially if they have problems repaying that debt while they are out of school.. When they do return, it is easier for them to return to another for profit college because those credits canada goose outlet in uk earned. are not as portable. So in many ways what happens is that the students in the for profit canada goose outlet store calgary college sector are really cycling in and out and through the for profit college sector, which we know is more expensive, where they will incur more debt and where they have lower outcomes when they graduate, if they ever do graduate.On how for profit colleges exploit the belief that all education is good education is foundational to the narrative of social mobility in this country.. Probably nothing is more American than the idea that, through hard work, everybody can separate themselves from the circumstances of their birth; through achievement and hard work we can all get ahead..People actually believe in that even poor people who have very little reason to believe in it because they’ve gone to relatively poor K 12 schools and had negative experiences. Over and over again, I heard people espousing their faith in education.
