According to this blurb in IHE, Career Education Corp is shutting down nine of its campuses, all in the Northeast. McIntosh College, Lehigh Valley College, and a bunch of Gibbs and Katharine Gibbs campuses will 'teach out,' closing in 2009. As a veteran of a proprietary college in the Northeast, this really struck me.

Let's consider two recent, related pieces in the University of Miami newspaper. The first announces the appearance, in selected classrooms, of a new technology called SYNCHRONEYES. Synchroneyes is the sort of thing universities all over the country are spending your tuition dollars on.
