Wow! the word politically sensitive packs a punch! Your p.o.v is a good one!
The one school has a class action suit against them, 3 ladies.
On here, I read about the ladies who went to $30k LPN to RN or RN private school (Orlando). The school fearing it's reputation and board pass rates, imo. . So the student thought they had graduated from the program and would receive their approval for b.on. The school surprise them with the HESI or something test. If they did not pass the HESI exit test, they were not receiving their approval and degrees. some of the ladies spoke with the president of the private school. Due to fact, it was sprung on them. Some did not pass the test. From what I read, the president said you could sue but it will spend yrs in the court system. WOW! .. They need to contact the Dept of Education. I have not kept up with thread,lately. Still there were potential who want to attend the school.
I believe next yr. My school (public) will have an exit test. Right now the B.O.N rates are 85 to 90%. Like you said It's a very political sensitive issue. But It is not right to take peoples money and offer inferior education.
When the Dept of Education spoke of 'clause', private education stocks went down. Education should not be a shareholder or profit holder option,imo.
Student and Buyer Beware!
