Along those lines, I think it's misguided to fear that the government's involvement will do long-lasting damage to the industry. I don't believe that will be the case. These companies still have the capabilities to provide opportunities for a wide range of Americans to build careers. To that end, if the government can curb some abuse with stricter policies, I think it's a good thing.
Likewise, as with good teachers with high expectations, good investors should dive head first into these stocks. If my suspicions are correct, in four years, several of these for-profit names, especially DeVry and Apollo, will graduate at the head of their class.
