Interesting. "Many for-profits are pushing for standardization of curriculum across institutions so that it becomes easier to size up comparable programs."

It is not beyond the pale to imagine the day when the private sector institutions have the clout to push educational standards in the same way they have already pushed things like educational metadata standards.
