I have worked for not-for-profit community colleges for more than 14 years. Over the last 5 years, my college has hired several employees who “jumped ship” from local for-profit institutions. Personally, I have hired two intelligent, talented staff members who left their jobs in for-profit institutions and took a cut in pay to come to work at my college. What does that tell you?
Check out the link below. You will find an interesting online discussion, much of which condemns for-profit institutions.
