Closing of Corrupt College: Good News or Not?

July 9, 2014

“Great News: for-profit Corinthian College to Close” the Mathbabe’s blog post today celebrates the closure of a corrupt on-line institution that preyed on “…“isolated,” “impatient,” individuals with “low self-esteem,” who have “few people in their lives who care about them” and who are “stuck” and “unable to see and plan well for future.” While this is clearly something to be celebrated, I read this shortly after reading a blog post about the closure of charter schools in MI… an article that used the closure of charters as evidence that privatization is a good thing… Why? Because unlike the poorly performing public schools that stayed open, the poorly performing charter schools closed. I’m sure that a pro-privatizatoin blogger is looking for a poor performing public college and will advance the same argument for post secondary schools in the near future.
