Report: New York For-Profit Schools Fall ShortMarch 29, 2018 |

New York’s for-profit colleges leave students with huge debt and have little impact on earning potential, according to a new report published by The Century Foundation.
The foundation, a New York City-based public policy think tank, compared student outcomes at 427 colleges and universities, including 112 public, 196 nonprofit and 119 for-profit institutions.
The report, “Grading New York’s Colleges,” argues that for-profit schools display a pattern of failing to meaningfully serve their students, especially African-Americans and first-generation students.
