Quote of the Week (from Last Week)
In the end, however, the case for the 10K-B.A. is primarily moral, not financial. The entrepreneurs who see a way for millions to go to college affordably are the ones who understand the American dream. That dream is the opportunity to build a life through
earned success. That starts with education.
Actually, I would be more likely to agree if I were allowed to swap out the “10K-B.A.” for “MOOCs.” It’s not that I think MOOCs will someday displace
the truly elite liberal arts education (I doubt it) but that the approach MOOCs are taking (though they still have far to go) is probably the best way to expand educational access now to millions around the world who otherwise wouldn’t have anything remotely resembling the quality these online courses can offer them.
