As the owner of a small. for-profit (HA!) career college, I am considered guilty until proven innocent by government from the state to the fed. While my state-sponsored colleagues blatantly flout their own accreditation requirements, I am subject to annual records audits, must purchase "going out of business insurance" to make sure my students will be reimbursed if I close a program, and cannot be included in school materials provided by local foundations to all high school seniors. But, then, my students have a 98% graduation rate and most complete with little or no debt, in less than half the time of their public school counterparts. My grads have a higher certification rate, too. No profit since 2008, though. I must deserve it.
