    Pretty cool thing sweeping the country right now ... it's called Open Courseware ... free college courses. I don't think they count towards a degree but it is free learning.

    Where to find Open Courseware & Open Education resources & classes

    This is a great idea and we should build on it, anything that makes our ppl smarter/better educated we should do no matter the cost.

    Education and Science is the key to our future, I really hope we as a country can agree on this, right or left.

    An aside, related to this, is that we know an educator from maine, who works pt for a company offering on line high school courses.. not sure why this is offered, but she is starting to make money from it. Education will change... difficult to conceptualize where it is going, but in 20 years it will look different than it does now.
