Heald College -- April 28, 2015

San Francisco Call, 25-December-1910
Many years ago I taught data processing and computer applications at Heald Business College.  The school had recently become a non-profit. 

In 2009, Corinthian College took over and converted the chain into a for-profit.  I think for-profit education is generally a bad idea.  Corinthian shut down all of its schools over the weekend, leaving students with little recourse and owing, in many cases, large amounts of money.  I'm very sorry to see this happen. 

Over the years Heald gave many people a good education in the shortest possible time.  I missed a chance in 2013 to write about the school's 150th anniversary.  I was there for the 125th.
