Walking Dead - SPOILERS

Did anyone else notice that the end tonight was channeling the end Of Mice and Men?

I am convinced the creative team is capable of almost anything at this point. Even more gruesome than the comic. When you have a dirty job just call Carol. In the comic the adults just stood around debating what to do next. It was left for a child to take decisive action.

College, the Great Unleveler


More Americans than ever enroll in college, but the graduates who emerge a few years later indicate that instead of reducing inequality, our system of higher education reinforces it.

The worst problems, though, occur at for-profit schools like those run by the Apollo Group (which owns the University of Phoenix), the Education Management Corporation or Corinthian Colleges. These schools cater to low-income students and veterans, but too often they turn hopes for a better life into the despair of financial ruin.


A good summary of what is going on with for profit colleges

Check out database for default rates. It is truly staggering the amount of wasted money going to Phoenix, ITT, Kaplan, and Devry. It shows how broken our political system is in that we cannot shut this down.
