Dan Burns at MPP examines for-profit schooling, pitfalls, politicians and profiteers.

Three related posts, in chronological order (oldest first), here, here and here.

Dan links to a MinnPost report, online here.

Also Dan has one post on healthcare which is worth reading.

I could quote, summarize, or paraphrase. Just read the items. That is best. Ask yourself: If universal public education of all youth were not a social benefit, why do we have it? Why has it evolved in the form it has? Is privatization of education to for-profit firms a sound thought? What are the dangers? What benefits and losses would attach?

UPDATE: For profits are under scrutiny; our friend John Kline, of all things obfuscating; this link.
