It's Friday Night! Party Time! Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!
More great documentaries have gone from PBS Frontline than I can count. This week they have done it again. In College, Inc. Frontline investigates for profit universities. Anyone considering going to school should watch this.
In College, Inc., correspondent Martin Smith investigates the promise and explosive growth of the for-profit higher education industry.
