Kaplan University provides a quality education To the editor: An Aug. 28 story in The Herald-Mail seemed to suggest that for-profit institutions, like Kaplan University, do not provide a high-quality education.

We understand that Altieri is entitled to his opinions, but we feel that the community should be aware of the rigorous education and unique academic opportunities offered at Kaplan University.
