Executive produced by news legend Dan Rather, Fail State investigates the dark side of American higher education, chronicling decades of policy decisions in Washington DC that have given rise to a powerful and highly-predatory for-profit college industry. With echoes of the subprime mortgage crisis, the film lays bare how for-profit colleges exploited millions of low-income and minority students, leaving them with worthless degrees and drowning in student loan debt. Director Alexander Shebanow traces the rise, fall, and resurgence of the for-profit college industry, uncovering their Wall Street backing and incestuous relationship with the regulators and lawmakers charged with overseeing them.Written by
As a non US person it was good to see this didn't descend into partisan politics- impartial. Snouts in the trough, nothing new but lays it out clearly.
I was sad for the people with the sham degrees but they also bare a degree of responsibility for not researching that these sham qualifications are not recognised by any employers or legitimate education providers.
Community colleges seem a good option, appears there are insufficient places in them. I would like to see the longer term benefit to Texas for their initiative.
We watched as a family- with the kids. Lots of pausing and conversing. Good film, well done all
