Thousands of California students remain in educational limbo after the collapse of the for-profit Corinthian Colleges chain. The parent company of 150-year-old Heald College, Corinthian had 28 campuses in the U.S. including sites in San Francisco, San Jose, Hayward and Concord. The closure announcement came as Corinthian was under investigation for numerous alleged violations, including inflating job-placement claims and engaging in predatory lending. We’ll examine why the colleges failed and how their former students are faring.
