Airing on Monday, April 27, 2015: For-profit Corinthian Colleges Inc. says it will close its remaining campuses, displacing thousands of students. The business has struggled since the Department of Education cut off access to federal student aid over graduation rates and allegations of falsified job placement rates. There are also state investigations, and a lawsuit from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We check on government regulation of the industry, and on the broader for-profit education sector.

Next: say you're a restaurant chain, and you decide using non-GMO ingredients was a smart business strategy. What would it take? For Chipotle Mexican Grill, it took two years to be the first restaurant to have no GMOs, and it started with a fairly simple menu.
