SAN DIEGO, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Private sector education's critics choose to ignore the very real and positive role that private sector educational institutions have in meeting 21st Century educational needs in America. Bridgepoint Education (NYSE: BPI) is addressing factual inaccuracies and misconceptions about private sector education with a new website, www.bpitransparency.com.  

The new website helps clarify the facts regarding private sector education and highlights Bridgepoint Education's role.  While traditional colleges and universities have neither the capacity nor flexibility to meet society's educational demand, Bridgepoint academic institutions – Ashford University and University of the Rockies – provide high-quality education opportunities to both traditional and non-traditional students.
