The original cut of 2K employees for 10/02/2015 will be spread out

Big cuts are coming and as many as 3K will be fired between now and next spring. A substantial number will be let go this Friday, mostly at physical campus locations.

How many sacks of shit were flushed today?

Glad to see more are getting the ax next week. UOP is a fraud--so many students were ripped off and taxpayers. You deserve to rot in hell Capelli and investors.

For those losing their jobs....

If you want to get justice for students (and for workers like Aldrich and Nolan who were forced to lie to and manipulate students), if you have documented evidence of wrongdoing, send it to me. We may actually be able to get something done--as more political allies begin to run for the exits. For ... read more

University of Phoenix College of Education Announces (Clueless) Teacher Appreciation Scholarship

You have to just laugh (or cry) at the pathos here. UoPX is offering scholarships to teachers who somehow have no clue about Apollo Group, University of Phoenix, or the #zombiecollege crash. If this weren't real, I'd have thought it was a Monty Python ... read more

#Zombiecollege University of Phoenix and the US College Meltdown

University of Phoenix will continue to be propped up by Title IV and GI Bill money. Yet they are part of the ongoing #zombiecollege crash and the much larger US college meltdown. Almost all major for-profit colleges are affected, to include EDMC, LINC, CECO, and BPI. HBCUs, tribal colleges, ... read more

University of Phoenix's Culture of Hate

If you want justice and/or reform let me know (it's not hopeless)

If you are a present or past worker of UoPX and are disgusted by corruption that you actually witnessed, please let me know. I don't make promises, but there may be two or more avenues where we can go that could be helpful.

UOP graduates are functional illiterates. Time for the Feds to shut the spigot

Borrowers at for-profit and community colleges, by contrast, earn low salaries — a median of about $22,000 for those exiting school in 2010 — and have had difficulty paying their loans. From study just published by Stanford researchers

Time to make a stand

There comes a time in everyone's life when they can either stand up for what they believe in and the values they claim to hold to, or they can be spineless wusses and look the other way as lives get destroyed.

Oh yeah, stock was $10 last week. I remember when it was in the $80 range. That should tell you a lot! Get out while you can or at least start working on a plan of escape.

UOP is a joke. Not pertaining to the education component but more regarding the leadership. Pay attention! None of them do anything on the Director, Sr. Director or VP levels except bark orders that make no sense. They're borderline racists and sexists.

No new VA funding for new students beginning in January ... read more
