    This is really too bad, since the skills taught in a number of ITT classes are more salable than those taught in most Humanities programs.

    Something that a number of companies do these days is to make reimbursements contingent on successful completion of classes. It would probably motivate people to do well in classes if the loans got called in if they didn’t pass the courses.

    And what of Harvard et al., the so-called “non-profit” sector? Student loans are just the thing to drive up tuition everywhere. Somehow, these schools will never be examined for this, just as subprime lending was never brought front and center as the heart of the mortgage crisis. Instead … cue … “progressive” politicians will lash out against “greed.”
