Politicians turn Florida into for-profit college paradise - MICHAEL VASQUEZ, Miami Herald

Students are a prized commodity at Florida’s for-profit colleges. Just two dozen can generate a million dollars in tuition by the time they are done. In their zeal to fill classrooms, some schools do whatever it takes. That can mean deploying strippers as recruiters — according to a federal government complaint against Miami-based FastTrain — lying about job placement rates and using high-pressure, boiler-room sales tactics, including a psychological technique called the “pain funnel,” that can reduce a recruit to tears. http://pubsys.miamiherald.com/static/media/projects/2015/higher-ed-hustle/students.html
