Number of students, schools shrinks in higher ed - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

New data from the Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics show losses in the higher education sector spurred on by a shrinking number of for-profit schools. The total number of federal aid-eligible institutions dropped 1.5% from 2012-13 to 2014-15, with for-profit institutions dropping 2.6% of their total, all degree-granting institutions. The number of students dropped across undergraduate and graduate institutions by 4.2%, with double-digit losses at two- and four-year for-profits, two-year private nonprofits, and fewer than two-year institutions overall.
