For-Profit College Students Less Likely to Be Employed After Graduation and Have Lower Earnings, New Study Finds
NEW YORK, NY (Feb. 21, 2012) — Students who attend for-profit colleges are less likely to be employed and have lower earnings six years after enrolling than similar students who attend public and not-for-profit colleges, according to a new study by authors affiliated with the Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment (CAPSEE). They also carry heavier debt burdens and are more likely to default on their student loans.
NEW YORK, NY (Oct. 4, 2011) — “Employment is the answer to poverty. Education is the answer to unemployment,” Sharon Morrissey, a Senior Vice President for the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS), said at a gathering of state higher education officials and researchers from across the nation at Teachers College, Columbia University, on October 4, 2011.
On September 26, 2011, Thomas Bailey, director of CAPSEE, spoke with Georgia West Stacey about the launch of the Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment.
