"The growth of for-profit providers in the K-16 education sector has generated more than its fair share of controversy. From the emergence of charter schools to postsecondary options such as the University of Phoenix, for-profit providers have been lauded for their capacity to serve historically underserved populations but derided for their pursuit of profit?which, critics argue, happens at the expense of the public good."
