Report: For-profit colleges gouging veterans
from The Tampa Tribune
On the heels of a student veterans group's warning, a U.S. Senate report reveals the extent to which for-profit universities benefit from the federal G.I. Bill program. For-profit schools received $1.7 billion in veterans' benefits during the 2012-13 academic year, 41 percent of all G.I. Bill dollars and almost as much as the cost of the entire program just four years earlier, according to the majority report of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee released July 30.
