After a prior posting discussing “Is College a Lousy Investment” I thought this related to that and was interesting. Some will look at this as a positive and some will say this is a negative. It is positive to me, as I prefer more choices as opposed to less. The other article discussed the cost benefit of going to college or foregoing college, this article shows how technology may bring the cost of an education to zero. Amazing.
Excerpt from the article:……there will always be students able and willing to pay for a traditional college experience and for them it will be a worthwhile investment. But for the vast majority, from a financial standpoint that kind of education makes no sense and is fast becoming unnecessary. He believes the higher education revolution is coming soon and will happen fast—perhaps fast enough to keep the next generation from finishing school with debts they may never be able to pay.
