Chiropractic School Accreditation On trial

http://chronicle.com/article/Dispute-Over-Chiropractic/130096/?sid=at&utm_source=at&utm_medium=en

Being by my husbands side and invested in his choice of career in chiropractic has revealed a lot of things nobody can possibly know without eye opening experience in this journey. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education the accreditation of chiropractic school is finally getting the attention it demands. In summary chiropractic school is hardly worthy of federal financial blessings and the people involved at keeping it in good standing and accreditation is getting exposed for the greedy liars that they are. According to Kelderman, "The Council on Chiropractic Education, which oversees 15 programs offering the doctor of chiropractic degree in the United States, makes its case for renewal Wednesday in front of the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity, an 18-member panel that makes recommendations to the education secretary on accreditation issues. The committee's meetings rarely attract any notice at all, much less controversy." Yes, tell us something we don't know!

This same effort to bring attention to the corrupted state of the chiropractic profession also took place in 2006 but obviously proved fruitless or else our situation along with thousands of others would be quite a different reality. Kudos to those working to bring integrity to the profession! I hope we can see change in my lifetime! I wouldn't wish the current state of things on anyone!! The debt load alone is an atrocity and a horrible return on investment. The powers that be knew this when the federal government briefly extended programs to DC's in the mid 2000's. It was at that time an 80% default rate on loans was discovered yet by the time my husband entered school in 2004-2008 he was granted however much he needed to borrow to get to be a chiropractor! Where is the accountability?? Isn't 80% default high enough to put an end to this madness?? Hopefully the CCE is cleaned up and held accountable for the scam.
