Last night, Frontline’s “Educating Sgt. Pantzke” highlighted the ongoing struggle veterans have dealing with earning a college degree once they leave the military. Frontline’s piece centers around the claim that these, mostly online, colleges allegedly offer full support for military students, but in the end, leave them with tens of thousands of dollars in debt and no degree.
Many of these colleges — University of Phoenix, Westwood College, Strayer University, Ashford University, Kaplan University, DeVry University — have pages that show their policies for military students.
What’s your opinion on these colleges? Have you had similar experiences?
