The for-profits have little interest in academic freedom per se. The better ones are very interested in seeing that their students get a good education, and so focus more on the students needs rather than the faculty prerogatives. This sometimes has positive effects, sometimes negative. Check out Danial Levy's work, described in the post "More on private higher education globally". He addresses some aspects of the issue of academic freedom in his work.

In searching your site for topics related to for-profit institutions of higher learning and what political impacts does it present to academic freedom? Or does it? thanks.
