Phoenix cuts 700 jobs

Interesting day in for-profit higher education  - Phoenix cut 700 jobs today mostly in admissions.  Not shocking based on their current issues with the Education department.

What made it interesting to me was that I provided a reference to Laureate Education for an employee who worked for me when I was CEO.  They are adding 250 curriculum developers in order to meet the new requirements. 

Two very different responses to the same issue.  One puts the halt on recruiting - the other builds in more quality.
