Are there other colleges to follow this closure process?
We have watched our public schools systems closing one by one. Here is the largest college in California subject to closure. If our leaders would only open up their mouths, media, and networks and express to the public what is actually happening.
Many years ago here in Muskegon, Michigan we saw many of our surrounding public schools begin to empty one by one and close early on in the 1980’s. No one said much, the press ignored or left these incidents out of the news. Now here we see a major college in threat of closure. There is a movement toward online education systems to be established on a global scale. If only our leaders would help it’s citizens prepare for this change. Please reference the following websites: http://www.khanacademy.org/ http://www.education2020.com/ and: http://epic2020.org/online-courses/ Preparing for future online education has many advantages.
