Submission + - For-Profit College Recruiters Use 'Pain, Fear" (huffingtonpost.com)

binarstu writes: From a recent article on the Huffington Post:
"Newly-released internal training documents from several for-profit colleges illustrate a culture that encourages recruiters to increase enrollment by focusing on emotions such as "pain" and "fear" to attract low-income students who are struggling with adverse personal and financial circumstances. ... The internal training guides shed light on recruitment methods that have long been criticized by student-advocacy groups as preying on uninformed, uneducated students who may have little chance of success once admitted to the schools."
