College, Inc.

While some people might think "college" and conjure up images of a leafy quadrangle, there are many schools that might be best thought of as a series of elaborate network servers and a few physical offices in a more modest office suite in a suburban building. The sector of higher education that includes for-profit colleges and universities that cater to non-traditional students is one that has received relatively little scrutiny, and this recent Frontline documentary takes a closer look. Correspondent Martin Smith takes a look at "the promise of the for-profit higher education industry" through interviews with school executives and former students (among others), and visitors to the website can watch the program here in its entirety. Visitors to the site can also chime in with their own thoughts on the subject, read responses from the colleges profiled in the program, and read extended interviews with some of the people featured on the show. Finally, the website also features a podcast version of the program.
