"Just as America’s veterans organization are coming together to demand better government protection against deceptive and abusive practices by for-profit colleges, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) seems to want to move in the opposite direction, pushing an amendment that would require the Pentagon to allow any college approved for military tuition benefits to have unrestricted access to recruit on military bases. Veterans and military groups, as well as other Senators, are now working to stop this Manchin amendment."............................................................http://www.huffingtonpost.com/davidhalperin/military-branded-websites_b_9131742.html

@HAcXW1Q-1mwb, apparently you are not a service member or veteran--or a person who cares about quality higher education and gainful employment. Manchin's amendment would not only give APUS greater access, it would give greater access to Everest College and other lower-value schools--to conduct "personal information sessions." If you read the posts from people who teach at APUS online, the online school is in danger of down going down the same path as Corinthian Colleges, Education Management, ITT Tech, University of Phoenix, UTI, and other companies that prioritized profit over people. Also, If you read earlier posts, you would know that full-time teachers are facing greater stress as they are forced to increase their workloads each semester. Even APUS needs to review its recruiting patterns and other business practices--because 23% of its students default on their school loans.
They should have the same access as the non-profit schools have Cumdump.
