Basic Black After the Broadcast: For-profit colleges... who wins, who loses?


June 14, 2013

After the broadcast, the panel turned the discussion towars the topic of for-profit colleges.  Students of color are enrolling in for-profit colleges at a rate several times that of white students; many are foregoing the option of community college, even though it's a less expensive option.  The resulting debt incurred by these students can be crippling.  Why are for-profit colleges attracting students of color in such large numbers?


Panel:
Callie Crossley, host, Under the Radar, 89.7 WGBH Radio
Kim McLarin, author, Divorce Dog: Men, Motherhood, and Midlife
Phillip Martin, senior reporter, 89.7 WGBH News
Peniel Joseph, professor of history, Tufts University
