Thread regarding DeVry Inc. layoffs

DeVry featured in "Fail State" documentary

"One of the most upsetting stories in the film is that of Murray Hastie, an Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder whose Google search led him to, a for-profit website designed to look like an official government page. A DeVry recruiter soon contacted Hastie, assured him his service member benefits would cover everything, and signed him up. Murray ended up with more than $50,000 in loans and was unable to afford community college once he learned his DeVry credits were useless. “I felt like a failure,” he says."

DeVry was an okay tech school when it was DeVry Institute and only offered associate's degrees. Then it cut classes to 8-weeks, dropped any pretense of admission standards, started calling itself a "university", and some moron in marketing made really bad choices with regards to advertising the remaining mess. Placing unprepared students into an accelerated program is just a recipe for disaster. Now the place is tearing itself apart, sending all the students online because the stupid scheduling software can't figure out how to actually run classes onsite, and firing everyone left and right, quietly like sharks in the night, and HR people won't hire the grads or employees. Now the world thinks that I'm Satan because I got stuck there too long, so I'm still trying to help students learn as best as I can (and they can) until I can find another job (have about 20 apps floating as we speak).

DeVry is no different than a PayDay loan sharking company. It is a morally corrupt, predatory company that exploits the weaknesses of its customers to enrich incompetent and hateful managers.
