Students Lured Into Trade Schools and Debt

In his article in The New York Times, Peter S. Goodman stated concerns about trade schools, “One fast–growing American industry has become a conspicuous beneficiary of the recession: for–profit colleges and trade schools”.

Schools that train students for careers in areas such as health care, computers and food service, enrollments are climbing as people anxious about declining job prospects borrow aggressively to pay for tuition that can exceed $30,000 a year.

Beware of schools which promise
much, but deliver little.
