Description

Miami Herald reporter Michael Vasquez took a deep look at the private for-profit college industry in Florida to determine why it has flourished while similar schools have struggled in other states. What he found: Florida politicians -- especially those in the state legislature -- have enabled the industry, passing more than a dozen laws that fueled its growth while hindering community colleges. In exchange, lawmakers have received hundreds of thousands in campaign contributions.
