Report shows military students more likely to attend for-profit schools

More than 1 million current, former and reserve members of the military attended some form of postsecondary education during the 2011-2012 academic year, but they were more likely to attend for-profit institutions than nonmilitary students, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Education. Almost a quarter of them attended for-profit institutions of two or more years compared to only 4 percent of traditional college students younger than age 24.
