Why I won’t teach for For-Profit schools

Because they are like this, right here.


Mention online learning and people frequently think University of Phoenix.  This is yet another one of those image problems online specialists face.  I very briefly worked for one of those places and it was one of the worst working experiences of my life.  No quality, no oversight, no academic freedom, very low pay for far too many hours, and quality control goons who would phone me to make sure I was on task. The saddest thing was, most of my students were in a very desperate place and it is clear that they had been preyed upon.  I know there are one or two for profit places out there which do offer some good programs, but for people wanting to build a career teaching online, please be careful.  there are plenty of 4 years and Community Colleges with fine distance learning programs. Look there first.
