I know a decent amount about this industry, because I owned apollo.
They service lower income people, many of whom have full time jobs, and children.
It would be impossible for them to go to a traditional college. They also go out into industry, and look for what companies are looking for in employees.
There is definitely a need for this.
Because the people who use these colleges have so many other responsibilities, and also lack some basic skills, a lot of them drop out.
The question is whether the govt. will keep giving the students loans to go to these schools.
