The latest entity to send undercover investigators to the University of Phoenix is ABC News, which on Thursday reported the results. They include a recording of a recruiter giving incorrect information about whether a program would enable a graduate to become a teacher, and encouragement to take out as large a student loan as possible -- even more than the fake student needed. William Pepicello, president of the University of Phoenix, appeared on camera to say that "absolutely" the university could do better in terms of the way it recruits but that the answer to whether Phoenix encourages recruiting like that shown in the segment is "absolutely not."
