Many of the for-profit school know their target audience have need of flexibility. They work during the day, often odd hours and can only attend classes on their schedule, not a brick and mortar’s. Those who need this sort of flexibility are duped into for-profits with the lure of the promise to work around their schedule and at their pace.

If you are working a minimum wage job and you shop at a dollar store for food you are a moron. Healthy and low cost are not two things you find at a dollar store…
