As the old saying goes which is why it's so important to pay attention to what Hillary (and Bill) does rather than what she says;

When it comes to "for profit schools" Hillary says;

Candidate Clinton has vowed to "crack down on predatory" for-profit schools as part of a broader plan to help lessen crippling student loan burdens on millions of Americans.

The "College Affordability Plan" posted to Clinton's campaign website dubs "for-profit colleges" as institutions who have "too often taken advantage of borrowers" and promised a "crackdown on the abusive practices of for-profit colleges that defraud taxpayers while burdening students with debt for educational programs of no value."

In fact, one of the Laureate's largest schools in the U.S., Walden University, was found to have burdened students with the second-highest debt load of any American school, according to a 2015 study by the Brookings Institute.

This sounds good but at the same time Hillary is blasting  away on the campaign trail this is what;s going on behind the scenes;

"Hillary Clinton has made it clear that all for-profit institutions should be held to the same standards and she will crack down on law-breaking for-profits by expanding support for federal regulators to enforce laws against deceptive marketing, fraud, and other illegal practices," Clinton spokesperson Josh Schwerin said.

Casting an even wider shadow around the situation, however, was the fact that Doug Becker, the founder of Laureate, has donated up to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

It also appears that Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as secretary of state, but before her husband was hired by the company, wrote to a top aide that she wanted officials from the school added to a State Department dinner guest list

And Hillary is quoted in making comments like:

According to emails released by the State Department, Clinton, in 2009, described the company as "the fastest growing college network in the world" and mentioned that it was "started by Doug Becker, who Bill likes a lot."
