Broadcast Date: Jun. 28, 2011

FRONTLINE investigates: Are for-profit colleges exploiting a generous new GI bill? "Educating Sergeant Pantzke" is the second of two FRONTLINE magazine segments airing June 28. As troops return from Iraq and Afghanistan, US government spending on veterans' education will more than double to $9.5 billion this year, and a growing percentage of this money has been ending up in the pockets of for-profit colleges. In a follow-up to FRONTLINE's "College, Inc.", correspondent Martin Smith investigates how the for-profit schools are aggressively recruiting huge numbers of new veterans with educational promises that many now question whether they can keep. Watch on air and online beginning Tuesday, June 28 at 9 pm ET on PBS (check local listings). www.pbs.org
