ProPublica's Sharona Coutts Discusses For-Profit Schools and Investment Funds

This week on the ProPublica Podcast, Sharona Coutts talks about her recent look into how investment funds are taking a more active role in the debate over for-profit colleges – a debate in which they stand to make, or lose, a lot of money.

Coutts explains how the schools lured students into signing up, why the government is funneling more money into these schools, and why each side claims the moral high ground.
