Posted on 02/08/2011 5:30:35 PM PST by Nachum
A group affiliated with progressive rainmaker George Soros became the latest to join the in vogue assault on for-profit education, accusing proprietary colleges last week of offering predatory loans to satisfy referral rules governing financial aid.
The well-heeled National Consumer Law Center, masquerading as a legitimate consumer watchdog, released last Tuesday a report in which the group criticized the for-profit education industry for allegedly gaming the so-called 90/10″ rules, which mandates that at least ten percent of student financial aid must be secured from non-federal lenders.
Even beyond the support of Soros, NCLC counts The Institute For College and Success (TICAS) among its generous donors.
As BIG GOVERNMENT previously reported, TICAS was founded by Robert Shireman, who later became an advisor to President Barack Obamas transition team and senior official in the Department of Education.
At TICAS, Shireman lobbied the federal government to more strictly redefine the regulatory regime governing for-profit schools. But finally installed as a member of bureaucracy he once lobbied, Shireman had the power and wherewithal to impose those regulations.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Will there be any way we can get rid of these Socialists when we retake the WH? If we can get all three Houses, the Socialist lobbying groups will find no quarter, but they still have a good year and a half to wreak havoc.
Unfortunately, the long road the ‘progressives’ have traveled to get to this point has us at a disadvantage. They infiltrated all the important institutions necessary for societial function.
It took them 70 years to get to this point, do you think they’re going away easily?
The collectivization goal will require violence. They can never seem to sweet talk enough people to ‘produce’ for the cause and there is not enough of them that know how to ‘produce’. It’s makers vs. takers.
Isn’t University of Phoenix owned by a leftist?
Russia would give just about anything to get hold of that EVIL BASTARD. Can’t we arrange something?
I wonder what we could get for both Soros and Bout?
“A group affiliated with progressive rainmaker George Soros became the latest to join the in vogue assault on for-profit education, accusing proprietary colleges last week of offering predatory loans to satisfy referral rules governing financial aid.”
I hate to say it, but Soros has this one RIGHT (sorry). If you don’t think so...look up “University of Phoenix sucks” on Google. You’ll see what they do to their ‘students’.
These operations need to be SHUT DOWN, or at least have their loan pipelines cut off.
