Higher Ed Needs Major Disruption - Froma Harrop, Real Clear Politics

Happily, there exists an alternative to four bankrupting years on campus. There's almost no learning, be it liberal arts or STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), that can't be had free -- or close to it -- online. MOOCs (massive open online courses) are perfectly suited to disrupt the campus model. As suggested above, expense isn't the only thing powering this revolution. It's the sense that the people running the universities have lost their minds. Either that or they'll say almost anything to get protesting students off their backs. (In doing so, they're also softly egging the students on to say absurd things that could haunt them when prospective employers Google their names.) http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2016/04/19/higher_ed_needs_major_disruption_130318.html
