      Good People, Bad Corporate Management

      Pros

      Good , creative environment. Good concept. At first, it really was about the students and changing lives and making a difference.

      Cons

      Greed set in, they were about the quantity or enrolled students NOT the Quality of those enrolled. Corporate Management had zero clue what the challenges of the front line workers were. They never had the connections of the students we had. Students were a number to them. Shame on you Corporate.
