Another U.S. Senator Raises Doubts About For-Profit Higher Education
By Kelly Field 
WashingtonSen. Richard J. Durbin, a Democrat of Illinois, joined a growing chorus of federallawmakers voicing concerns about the growth and cost of for-profit colleges in a speechon Wednesday that called for limits on the amount of federal student aid that may bespent on marketing and a review of a rule that allows for-profits to receive up to 90percent of their revenue from federal aid.Mr. Durbin also proposed a ban on companies that acquire accreditation through thepurchase of nonprofit colleges, and suggested greater scrutiny of loans that for-profitcolleges make to their students.His remarks, in a speech at the National Press Club,came a week after the Senate education committee held a hearing in whichlawmakers vowed to crack down on "badactors"in the rapidly growing for-profit sector to protect federal student-aid dollars fromfraud and abuse. That hearing featured testimony from a Wall Street investor, StevenEisman, who likened for-profit higher education to the real-estate market before itscollapse, with easy credit driving prices ever higher and large defaults looming.In his speech, Mr. Durbin cited Mr. Eisman's testimony and echoed its warnings."There is growing concern that we could be looking at a repeat of the subprime-mortgage fiasco, with low-income, high-risk students mortgaging their futures—not onoverpriced homes this time, but worthless diplomas," he said.Mr. Durbin promised to work on legislation taking aim at for-profits with Sen. Tom Harkinof Iowa, chairman of the education committee.
