The business of higher education is booming. It's a $400 billion industry fueled by taxpayer money. But what are students getting out of the deal? Critics say a worthless degree and a mountain of debt. Investors insist they're innovators, widening access to education. FRONTLINE follows the money to uncover how Wall Street and a new breed of for-profit universities are transforming the way we think about college in America.

College, Inc. is a FRONTLINE co-production with RAIN Media, Inc., produced by Chris Durrance and John Maggio and written by John Maggio and Martin Smith. The correspondent is Martin Smith.
