  •  It reminds me of what I've heard of U of Phoenix (2+ / 0-)

    as well: I've had a lot of friends who have taught there solely as for-cash adjuncts. I've yet to hear a single nice thing ever said about it from anyone who has worked there, ever.

    Not a lot of experience teaching the younger crowd, sorry (other than a wee bit of substitute teaching), but his just seems like an epidemic problem with for-profit schools where credentials are valued over the educational process and money over educating.

      I worked on a grant project with UC Berkley tracking incoming students' chances of graduation success. We examined a number of factors. Geographic region, straight form high school, transferring from other 2 year schools, other 4 year schools, etc. When ranked, U of Phoenix had one of the worst projected grad rates when transferring to a standard 4 year school.
