ITT Technical Institute to Close After Government Cuts Off New Funding They have issues for a long time, but this guy pointed out some reasons it failed I think are close to mark. Education and health care, should they be about profits, or improvements for the individual? (EDIT 9/12: Not including "Non-Profit" and "Not-For-Profit", as and net profit is spent to improve institution) Project XQ and boyinaband are challenging the fundamental goals of current US schools. What I see is the privatization attempts are trying to work around the ancient education structure, when what really needs to be done is build a new structure from scratch. ======================UPDATE===================================== PBS Frontline will have a program about this on Tuesday, Sept 13. Great timing!
