Colleges brace for For-profit takeovers

Last year, there were at least 10 for-profit takeovers of nonprofit colleges. Some see a coming changeover process akin to what happened in the last decade when hospitals were bought up by for-profit companies, and we all know how well that worked out. Just another way in which education is coming to resemble the health-care crisis (sorry for the self-quote.)

Capitalism at its best, and worst. Could you elaborate on why you think this will be bad? Lower-quality students? Professors? General Standards?
