Not to be horribly local, but the isplomion of the NJDOE's leadership over the failed bid for Race the to Top funding. Not only has Schundler been shown the door (in August), but Christie has been shown to be an opportunistic liar (*DUH*), while 5 out of 6 Assistant Commissioner positions are now empty. In NJ, there is no state when it comes to Educational Policy. When it comes to the Politics of Education, however .fire up the popcorn maker.

I found this post on Pro-publica and have had a very similar epcxrienee. I'm just clipping highlights here, but its the same story from many that I have talked to Excelsior College in NY has very cozy access to military personnel around the world, and while maintaining accreditation for its School of Nursing, has an abysmal graduation rate. The ‘final’ is a 3 day practicum that has about a 25% pass rate, but the strategies the school uses to wind a student in, convince them to purchase seminars and workshops, and collect testing fees are identical to the for profit industry. Yet they still have several states that will not acknowledge them for state licensure at the RN level. For those that do finally pass, it is usually at the 2d or 3rd attempt, racking up and additional $10,000 above and beyond the basic tuition and testing fees for non-traditional learning. The test cycle that I participated in had 6 students, and all 6 failed. The other big indicator should have been a red light from the git-go. The theory exams, all available at around $300 per test, can be completed in a few weeks. I did 9 in 7 months, the equivilence of 40 credit hours, so it should have set off lights and buzzers. I do admit my culpability in this epcxrienee. I substitued my due diligence by the fact that it was heavily endorsed by the Army Medical Corp. There is a strong possiblity that Excelsior is protecting a revenue stream, as Chapter 31 Voc Rehab students and GI Bill students are never given full disclosure regarding the pass rate of their nursing program final. Is the VA doing anything about this besides paying the bill? The College was all too happy to ding my VA account for a re-test' within days of the failure. I'm currently in an appeal with the school. My Voc Rehab counselor is stunned, she's never seen anything like it. Has it come up at all in these discussions of for profit vs non-profit schools?
