Ryan Quinn (“Be careful when looking for cheap education,” AFN, March 24) offered a very enlightening opinion regarding the private, for-profit university educations that are being offered continuously on television, radio, Internet pop-ups and in print media. While it is valid that the poorer the economy, the more need for higher education if one is to secure a good job. These colleges also qualify for the same Pell Grants and student loans that state-run universities offer, but the degree usually has less merit in the marketplace. Taxpayer dollars being lent for these for-profit universities are frequently just another scam. Good advice from the letter writer — buyer beware.
