Through his book, Dr. Cleamon Moorer guides the readers through an intimate journey about his progression from failure to promise. Cleamon is from a small town of Detroit with parents, who love him and enforce discipline, but most importantly, they nurture his faith in Jesus Christ. He excelled in academics during both elementary and middle school, however, his mischievousness throughout those years earns him many disciplinary sessions. In high school, misbehavior becomes history, yet, his GPA suffers in the low C’s.
Andrew Hacker and Claudia Dreifus support this argument in their article “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” when they criticize colleges for not focusing on the right priorities to aid undergraduate learning. If for-profit colleges were truly focused on undergraduate learning, they wouldn’t pile so much debt on them that it’s nearly impossible to get out of it.

My main role is to provide emotional support for the residents and entertain them, as many of them go for long periods of time without visitors and feel increasingly lonely. I do this by playing games with the residents or simply by talking to them. This experience has enabled me to embody both my creativity and logical thinking by devising new ways to connect with the residents, for example, playing a simple drawing game that we all enjoy,

Many people are talking about the possible downfalls of these schools, The Policy Director of Education Sector Kevin Carey, in his commentary “Why do you think there called For-Profit Colleges?” published in The Chronicle of Higher Education, July 25, 2010,addresses the topic of for profit colleges, students loans and higher education and argues that for profit schools are necessary despite the “shady” things and financial dangers going on because they fill a void left by traditional institutions, and they are to stay.
