"Ok, this link is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a LONG time. This concept of teaching and training will most likely change our education system as we know it today. It will help us parents help our children with their homework, it will help our children explore a whole range of topics, ideas and so much more. It provides a learning process that engages kids and adults in an entirely different way. Literally anything that can and should be shared has infinite possibilities!

Obviously, those that tap into these types of learning outlets will have to do so with a concerning mind because of course, anyone can put anything out there but again, the idea of teaching from a perspective that more can understand and relate to will help us as population expand our minds and our horizons and why it excites me!!!!

Take a look at http://www.khanacademy.org/

This Indian born fellow started this program supporting his nephews and nieces, and now he has over 3,600 videos online (free). He was featured on 20/20. This is teaching the kids in a format they can understand and retain the information, not the 50’s style lecturing. In the schools where they are using his videos, students are flocking into the math classes."

Texas has made good on it's promise of a 10k college education causing the education establishment paroxysms of angst. Online is the future of education, universities hate it because you don't need student loans to get a real education, not indoctrination that passes for education.

Your student loans are paying the retirement of those lefty profs who told you how bad the US sucks...suckers! :)
