interesting we don't think 90% of people cheating [via denise popes research at stanford et al] is a scam. who's to say? what's a diploma tell us? yong zhao's research tells us that high math scores reflect low creativity/entrepreneurship/happiness - and that's not even looking at the potential that those with high scores don't remember the information the presented at one point in time to get those scores.

perhaps we look more at where people are.. if 2/3 in credit recovery... rather than bashing that... let's ask - why are they there?
the article references - most there are failing... so how could they be doubling up on classes. on people failing school - couldn't that also mean they are too bright for our system? too awake to accept it as is?

Could online courses be the death of the humanities?

depends on how managerial we remain.
could open up research to the unlikely, unseen/unheard, not so wealthy, geniuses.. that are everywhere.. with the cure to cancer, to ai-type-coffeehouse convos.. that tech is begging us to have, that gb shaw would swim in.. and applaud greatly.

Listening to a Middlebury College political economist speak on the fiscal cliff. Taxes will need to rise, entitlement growth must slow.
