The business of higher education is booming. It's a $400 billion industry fueled by taxpayer money. But what are students getting out of the deal? Critics say a worthless degree and a mountain of debt. Investors insist they're innovators, widening access to education. FRONTLINE follows the money to uncover how Wall Street and a new breed of for-profit universities are transforming the way we think about college in America.

Frontline: College,Inc.

By Ragweed

from Apopka, Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: College, Inc. DVD:

Very informative, it proves that in a capitalistic society nothing is exempt.
It gives the cold hard facts about student loans. The only way they can go away is to be paid off.

Middle Schoolers De-incorporated

By brazmunkee

from Albuquerque, NM

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: College, Inc. DVD:

I teach and live in the same community, which is rare for educators of youth. Many of us live in higher-income neighborhoods than our students. This disparity in wealth usually leads to a disparity in education, less exposure to vocabulary in general, and specifically almost no access to institutional economic jargon. I lent the movie out to a few of my students and it started a conversation among the parents at our school. For the first time in 20 years, we now have a PTA demanding authentic education for the families of our students. This movie can change minds. It can bring people to action. It can transform communities. This is a must-see for anybody who connected or will connect with college in some way.

The New Enron Scam

By HOPELESS

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: College, Inc. DVD:

My husband flunked the Devry entrance exam. They had him take a "class" to by-pass the entrance exam. He flunked out of the 1st semester, 2nd semester and 3rd semester. We now have a $53,000 student loan bill that we can NEVER repay. We make such low income that it always stays in deferment. HOW MANY OTHER STUDENT LOANS ARE OUT THERE IN NO-WHERE-LAND NEVER TO BE REPAID???

MUST READ for H.S.Grads and thier Parent

By IansDad

from Mahtomedi, MN

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: College, Inc. DVD:

Theres alot os professional " salesmen and saleswomen " out there making alot of " false promises " and one heck of alot of money under the guise of promoting higher education. Theres no quick and easy way to get a worthwile education other than plain old hard work and study. Theres no better deal out there for a good, honest, accredited education than Community and State colleges ( Not-for-Profit Colleges ). The " For-Profit " Colleges appear to be just as big of crooks as the Prescription Drug Companys. You get what you pay for if you're smart. If you're not smart and if you're not expremely careful, you get what you deserve. I highly recommend seeing this DVD to anyone interested in furthering thier education after High school.

Eye opening about abuses by "on line" universities at the expense of the students! DO NOT SIGN ON TO U. OF PHEONIX...OR DEVRY...or do so at your financial peril!
