CollegeDebts I think this new trend awau from public universities is extremely slippery slope to longterm recessions and suffering.  Innovation and civil progress demand free thinking and critically intelligent education of many students from all walks of life.  Corporatizing college is just crazy.  Students and colleges should not be beholden to corporate goals alone.  The public domain social intelligence is larger than the sum of the parts.  BEsides kids are getting severely ripped off with huge tuition and second rate online courses with debatable credentials. ( including government student loans just for private colleges )

What are your thoughts of this new kind of American education?
