I'd love to see some of those assholes hang for this. God only knows that if you or I were to make a couple of bucks this way, our "betters" in higher education would be screaming for our heads and how corrupt and greedy we are, etc...This almost makes the NY State Attorney's Office look good to me for a change. By the way, higher ed is probably one of the most crooked institutions in the world. Check out the scandal in the CA state system. Some lesbian administrator got her lover a job, home, all kinds of goodies that the school (the students and parents) paid for. I don't know what ever became of the whole thing, but I hope somebody did some time. Sometimes I wonder why the fuck I should be honest, nobody else is, that's for sure. The only thing the above thieves are sorry about is being caught.

Modernity sez: People that don't cheat are fat, quavering cuckold hicks and nerds.

Didn't she swan dive off the 40-story balcony outside her San Francisco apartment? Or was that another lesbian?

She was from UC Santa Cruz (I think she was the chancellor), and yes she did jump to her death.

If there ever were an industry sorely in need of a massive shakeout and consumer backlash, it's the higher education scam, er, industry.

Of course the chances of any shakeout and especially consumer backlash are zero. Sheeple keep their mouths shut and meekly fork over ever-increasing amounts of money to colleges.

It's regrettable that online learning has never really gone anywhere, despite the ubiquitous University of Phoenix ads.


Are people shocked to discover that high level administrators at prestigious universities, including the Ivy League Columbia University, are greedy crooks? I'm not.


Entrepreneurs exploit asymmetries in information. Intelligent people seek out information that they can that others do not have.

It seems to me that HS is just jealous.

They took kickbacks, that's illegal.
