    Pros

    Heald provides structure and basic education to the most disadvantaged students in the East Bay. Teaching there is very rewarding because the students appreciate teachers who respect them and are sincere in their desire to help them improve their lives.

    Cons

    Students leave with huge debt they can never repay because most still are unemployable, and even if they got a job, the jobs for which they may qualify are very low paying. Academic management is unqualified because the college is primarily concerned with making money from enrollment. Quality of instruction is an afterthought.

    Advice to Management

    Tell prospective students to enroll in the nearest community college to avoid almost certain future bancrupcy
