Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics: A Breakdown of the Federal Strategy to Close HBCUs
Jarrett Carter Sr.

I don’t know about this. I work in Higher Education and for-profit school did use and market their program to the unemployed and poor….with 90% of their revenue going to the company that owns it. The federal government gave it a chance to flourish, but the student is not, not accountable. It’s more than just registering students for jobs, you have to advise them accordingly and help them understand the market for which career you decide. You are actively involved in the processes of your career.

Additionally, if you look at the reasons HCBUs (the ones that failed or are failing) is due to mismanagement of funds, not recruiting effectively and being innovative with their recruiting efforts, lack of retaining students, and alumni don’t give back. That’s internal issues.

But currently, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the reauthorization of the Black Colleges and Universities Historic Preservation program. The bill authorizes an appropriation of $10 million in each of the next seven years for programs to preserve historic buildings on the campuses of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities.
