That place needs to be put out of its misery. Does anyone there even have any extra cash to donate to the student food pantry?

Well, Trump and Devos have both been very clear that they think everything should be run like a business, so it's no surprise that they would not support the Obama-era DOE's practice of targeting for-profit educational institutions. Now, that ethos is permeating down to the rank-and-file. They will be ordered to go back to pretending that higher education is a free market. So if a school closes, it will be because not enough people enroll, not because the government turns off the loan spigot in an effort to protect students from themselves.

Of course, the distortion caused by the availability of loans makes this anything BUT a free market, but this matters not to this administration.

"The for-profit college industry has long been a favorite target of the Obama administration as the White House attempts to harness mounting student debt."

Under Obama, pigs may have gotten fat, but hogs got slaughtered.

To be fair, it was the Podesta Group - founded by Democratic loyalists - that helped Charlotte secure this victory. While there are good ideological arguments against the scam on both sides: subsidies distort the market (conservatives) defending powerless students against powerful institutions (liberals), nobody in power seems to really care. I'll give the Obama administration credit for at least going after the for-profit scammers, but they never were going to touch the "not for profit" scammers in liberal academia.

It's too late. Although the loan reversal is wrong, and probably down more to Clueless Boomer-itis more than political ideology, the school's reputation is ruined and they're under state license suspension.

People on here target for profit schools but I went to a for profit school and my 6figure debt hurts just as bad.
