Forum Post: No More Education Funding

I argue that public universities should never be funded any more than they are now because they refuse to adapt. I could be in my dorm room watching a youtube video of my lecture instead of having to drive to school every day, wasting my time and money. For classes where participation is not required, such as math and sciences, all content should be available free online, with comprehensive testing available at little to no cost. Teachers unions hate this stuff, as it means a lot less work for them, however, we need to get money out of schools.

End the for profit educational system.

Right on. It is absurd. The internet has liberated knowledge, yet we still act like it's a limited resource.
