For-profit universities and student debt

The New York Times has a stinging editorial about the tuition at “for profit” colleges, the useless degrees (for “college level work” even online), and then the load of student loan work at the end.   Is this an example of crony capitalism or corporate welfare?

And some of the ads about people who started businesses based on the skills they learned at these online schools seem rather quaint.

The WB show “Jack and Bobby” about a decade ago presented the sons of a college English professor who talked about residential college as the start of adult life.  I got a campus experience in graduate school at KU, but lost out on the undergraduate part.
But I emerged from all this with no debt, in 1968.
