Community colleges don’t mislead students

I feel sorry for the 130,000 students or so who were misled by for-profit colleges about landing a job (“A DeVos System Allowed 12 Minutes to Decide Student Loan Forgiveness,” The New York Times, Mar. 20).  But what I don’t understand is why these adult students never enrolled in community colleges instead.

They could have received excellent training in virtually any field they wanted at an affordable price.  Instead, they chose to spend upwards of $100,000 for a degree that wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on. Were they so naïve to believe the claims made by these schools?

Nevertheless, the Education Department should grant partial relief to those defrauded.
