Accreditation "Wholly Inadequate" Quality Measure
#1
Quote:Accreditation has been shown over and over again to be wholly inadequate as an indicator of minimal quality.

So sayeth Betsy Imholz, special projects director for Consumers Union.

Who Watches California For-Profits?

Also this down near the bottom (where he likes to be) from America's favorite civil rights violator and pervert, Anal Contreras:
Quote:The reason for placing the cutlines at regional accreditation and nonprofit status is that it is very rare for our office to receive, and have to process, student complaints about schools with those two characteristics. The state's concern is less with whether accreditors maintain a theoretical commitment to a minimally acceptable academic baseline (they do), but whether accreditors are capable of handling complaints and consumer-related problems in a meaningful way (they are not).

Sure Anal, that was why you picked a fight with Bob Jones U, because of all those consumer complaints you were getting, and all those huge profits they were making.  Nothing at all to do with their stand against perverts like you.

If not an indicator of that, then what?  I keep hearing Edwin Starr singing "Absolutely nothin'!!"

Has California been inundated with lawsuits and complaints from students getting ripped off left and right by "unaccredited, for-profits"?  No.  In fact, as Trace Urban was quoted in the article, "they're more inclined to be even more careful during this period" of lack of regulation.   So if lack of regulation results in greater caution from those in the suspect class, does more regulation result in less caution?  Sounds like things actually improve for students the less the government puts its greasy thumb in your soup.
