Tressie McMillan Cottom-Lower Ed:The Troubling Rise of For-Profit Colleges
in the New Economy.
*Lower Ed*, the first book to link the rapid growth of for-profit degrees
to America’s increasing inequality, reveals the story of an industry that
exploits the pain, desperation, and aspirations of people in vulnerable
circumstances and exposes the conditions that allow for-profit education to
thrive. Tressie McMillan Cottom draws on her personal experience as a
former admissions counselor at two for-profit colleges and over one hundred
interviews with students, senior executives, and activists to detail how
these schools have become so successful and to decipher the benefits,
pitfalls, and real costs of a for-profit education.
