My question involves education law in the State of: Massachusetts and more
Since 2000 the number of pharmacy schools has essentially doubled and it is estimated that in the next 5-7 years there will be 93,000 more pharmacists than jobs. Many of the schools are for-profit schools which have admitted students with qualifications that would not have qualified them for a public school. Many of the students are coming out with 100K, 200K, and 300K of debt that they cannot pay back. Some of the new schools are funded by drug wholesalers and retail chains who are now cutting salaries and jobs and are splitting full-time jobs into two part-time jobs with no benefits as they have an unlimited supply of pharmacists. Do pharmacy schools have an obligation to cut enrollment if graduates have little or no prospect of a job? Can graduates sue?
