Well that’s one way to take care of your student loans! But in all seriousness, a Jackson County jury recently ruled against Vatterott College to the tune of $13 million dollars for violating the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. Basically, the ruling will allow those who were mislead in thinking they were getting a valuable degree. The ruling sheds light on the booming for-profit college industry that has long been criticized for guiding students to expensive courses of study that lead to few or low-wage employment. An appeal is expected.
