“For-Profit Colleges, Vulnerable G.I.’s” by Hollister K. Petraeus (TIMES, 9/22/11)


     Kudos to Hollister K. Petraeus, wife of CIA Director David H. Petraeus, for her exposure of the shady practices of for-profit colleges who “see service members as nothing more than dollar signs in uniform.”

     Such schools “have a strong incentive to enroll service members and veterans,” no matter what their qualifications or state of health in order to take advantage of the “90-10 rule” of the Higher Education Act.  “As long as military education funds are on the 10 percent side of the 90-10 rule, service members will be  a lucrative target for exploitation.”

     As the “assistant director for service member affairs” at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mrs. Petraeus is in position to call attention to this blatant exploitation of U.S. service people and veterans.  She is also serving as a good standin for her husband, the former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
