Career College Central Summary:
A state education board found Monday that high percentages of students drop out of private for-profit colleges in Wisconsin.
The Educational Approval Board reported that from 2012-’13, over 36 percent of the 46,634 students enrolled in for-profit institutions like Rasmussen College and the University of Phoenix dropped out of school.
