College, Inc. Teacher's Guide (Document)
Through interviews with school executives, government officials, admissions counselors, former students and industry observers, the film explores the tension between the industry – which says it's helping an underserved student population obtain a quality education and marketable job skills – and critics who charge the for-profits with churning out worthless degrees that leave students with a mountain of debt.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
