You should have figured with the "born-again" horn player being involved with DCEH, that it would be a scam. Now it's the non-profit scam and their subprime colleges. as David Halperin notes, DCEH isn't the only player. Purdue University/Kaplan is another scam. And Bridgepoint (Ashford University) is trying to pull of the same non-profit, tax avoidance strategy. Same sh*t, different bottle.
The horn player is the mad genius behind much of this crap. If you have never seen College Inc, it's a classic.
