This is no longer a "fringe" issue, it must be brought to the center of ed reform as community reform. We can build as much value in software, pedagogy and communities, but unless we can take the same urgency towards building networking accessible to all, we're creating value for a few.
Over 50 years ago the supreme court ruled out "separate but equal" institutions of learning.
Now learning is becomming deinstitutionalized, should we allow for the same savage inequalities to persit?
This cause is winnable, we just have to fight for it.
