"Jennifer Wright, a former Marine Corps officer who teaches grade schoolers in the California desert, had a dream. She wanted to get her doctorate in education while her two elderly parents were still alive — and while continuing to teach the low-income students she felt really needed her."

"Six years after enrolling in a distance learning program with one of the nation's best-known for-profit schools, however, Wright, 51, still doesn't have her degree. She has exhausted the GI Bill benefits she earned from serving 16 years in the military and is $224,000 in debt."

"I feel like I've wasted six years of my life," said Wright, "and I owe more than my house is worth."
