The NY Times editorial board shows its foolishness by ignoring the obvious problems with the NY AG’s lawsuit against Trump University. Is there any real difference? As far as I can tell, at least Trump University made some of the courses free from the beginning. The college industrial complex is just discovering how to use MOOCs for marketing.
Trump’s lawyer told the AP that “Trump University provided nearly 11,000 testimonials to Schneiderman from students praising the program and said 98 percent of students in a survey termed the program ‘excellent.’ ”
OF course they did. If you are the sort of person who was going to pay Donald Trump $35,000 for a degree in the first place, you probably expected this sort of thing.
Besides, if you look at the value people are getting from actual Trump-free universities— who knows if you’re much worse off?
