Fraggle850 October 27, 2015 at 5:12 pm The linked article does go on to discuss somewhat dubious practices. It suggests that the students are unlikely to benefit from any education and that the private college are just scamming tax dollars out of the aussie gubernmentalists. Yay, free enterprise! (Hello Mr W, El Reg refugee here, any others out there?) BC October 27, 2015 at 6:49 pm The “college” sounds fairly dodgy!
