5 stars ***** for Gov. Tim Pawlenty. It's about time some one in government is using their brains. My daughter finished her last semester online at UMD, she loved it and graduated. They might have to fine tune the testing process though. She had to drive to UMD to take the tests for the classes, which were usually held on Saturdays. Not a real problem if you live within a few hundred miles of the college.
Just think about all the tax money we would save for less brick and mortar, not building expensive high schools and colleges. More good teaches and less administration. More commitment from the students and less money spent on baby sitting.
I like the idea. It works.
