Can we protect public housing families from predatory for-profit colleges?
With used car-salesman like tactics, predatory for-profit college recruiters have pressured low-income students to enroll in courses and take out student loans without telling the whole story about the true cost of fees or future employment prospects. The end result? Crippling debt and unemployment for students already struggling to make ends meet. What’s worse? Some recruiters are aggressively marketing their for-profit programs to public housing residents.
