Zovio is running out of money!!!

Down to $70 million in cash and had to take out a $100 million loan for 15 percent interest!!!! The sham is up and now they will be gone within a few years

I hear Ashford profs have been pressured to pass all their students, that some students have been granted degrees despite not meeting degree requirements, and that plagiarism has been ignored. Any truth to that? If so, how rampant is it?
