The earlier coverage of for-profit education here has been attracting some attention, so I thought it was worth passing along a few more related items:
- For-profit Keiser University has reportedly dropped the lawsuit it filed against Florida State College at Jacksonville, its president, and its chief lobbyist for "tortious interference with a business relationship" and "injurious falsehood" in connection with what it says was "a false and misleading campaign in the Florida press and the national media designed to disparage Keiser University and to drive Keiser and other proprietary schools out of business. The complaint, filed in Broward County, Florida, had named two money managers, Steven Eisman of Frontpoint Financial Services Fund, LP, Greenwich, Conn., and Gilchrist Berg of Water Street Capital, Jacksonville, Fla., as "co-conspirators."
- That 2,600-word front-page piece in the New York Times about the Washington Post Company's Kaplan University managed to quote not a single current Kaplan University student or faculty member. The only student quoted attended in 2004.
