Detention May Be Over

The heyday of for-profit schools and vocational centers seemed to suddenly end during the Great Recession, with the real-world economy unable to deliver on the promise of career advancement through more schooling. Then came scrutiny from federal regulators, who focused on the mounting debt loads faced by graduates struggling to find jobs.[1] All of which has contributed to the share prices of these schools plummeting between 32% and 86% in the two years ending May 2013. But a recent court ruling may have limited the government’s authority to regulate for-profit schools, thereby maintaining the availability of federal loans for students in these schools.[2] And, if a recovering economy can spark increased enrollments, longer-term investors may consider pushing these stocks to the head of the class.
