Maddy and Ryan moved on to discussing the for-profit education business, another industry that has been under fire from government regulators recently. The focus this week was ITT Educational Services (ESI), which announced it would be shutting down all of its schools just days after the U.S. Department of Education banned the company from enrolling new students who depend on federal financial aid.
