For 75 years, the GI Bill has provided military service members with invaluable educational opportunities. And for just as long, for-profit colleges and universities have sought to gain and maintain access to that funding stream. 

In the latest episode of “Deep Dive with Laura Arnold,” Laura sits down with Carrie Wofford, President of Veterans Education Success, to examine some of the questionable recruiting tactics being employed by for-profit institutions and discuss ways in which the system can be improved for the brave men and women who have proudly served.
