So they didn't even ride out the election to see of somehow, some way Trump would get in and privatize the whole DOE. Wasn't expecting rhis announcement until November.
As a former war Vet who was scammed into Brown Mackie its a great day in America! The Bullshit From GI Jobs Magazine endorsing this scam Company known as EDMC. Military Friendly my f---ing ass its called the 90-10 Rule and is a huge scam and loophole that these fake colleges use to get extra money! Im so happy i figured this sh-- out on my own about 2 years ago and got out with 20 months left of my GI Bill to at least go to a real college and get something. What a great day for the USA!
"Are You A Brown Mackie College Student Or Staffer? We Want To Hear From You"
The Brown Mackie website is still running.
yeah sorry, you are not a student. Most likely you are someone who is trying to validate their sorry excuse for a career through pretending students love you. Oh well, the first step is denial, right?
Why would a student go onto a layoff board? Esp when it is so easy to see why they are closing
maybe if EDMC hadn't destroyed my life and if I weren't over 100k in debt because of the company maybe I'd feel a little sorry for you. Join the f---ing peace core if you want to feel good about your job. You preyed on the working class for their loans and made the shareholders happy, that's all you did. EDMC deserved everything that happened to it today and if you couldn't see how badly it's failing you deserved to lose your job too. Welcome to the poverty club, we students have kept your seat warm.
I am a student at brown Mackie. Our school has an amazing staff and my education has been incredible. Had nothing to do with the probably thousands of people who are losing their jobs as we speak.
yeah, sorry that a few people will have to find new jobs. They should feel glad to be able to find new jobs that don't contribute to the pain of others and a higher ed system that is broken.
What about the 10s of 1000s that are now burdened with debt from terrible training at a school which values investors over students? They will have this debt for life --- not exactly as easy as just finding a new job. Ex-employees of EDMC don't know what pain and desperation in being lied to and thereby trapped under crushing, inescapable debt feels like. How do THEY look in the mirror?
My husband worked in admissions and was let go today along with the rest of his department. Time to move on to bigger and better things
I'm sorry to everyone who lost their jobs today. I was let got a few years ago and now I'm so much happier, but I did meet many nice people there with whom I remain friends with many to this day. I hope the same happens for you all.
We were told that all BMCs were closing. Our entire campus went into individual meetings with the director and were informed of our end date and severance packages...
Some were let go today.
It's easy to say that all the schools were terrible and paint all for profits with a broad brush, but shame on you who do so. We worked hard to provide the best opportunities and education to the students with what we were given. Good people were hurt today. How can you look yourself in the mirror when you celebrate someone else's pain.
Does anyone know how many BC campus were closed and how many people were laid off at this point?
It was just a paycheck nothing more. Off to the next school!!
not sad at all. People who were employed here should be ashamed of having to collect a paycheck at the expense of future generations
a good day for all future possible students that won't become victims of this scam center. Across the board, just terrible numbers. Check it: />
Any idea how many ppl are going to lose their job? So sad.
Just lost my job,, I want to punch my campus director in the head, thanks Mathew for running our school in the ground.
