What if we saw degrees as real estate?
Surprising lessons from a different market:

Everyone assumes that tenured profs are worse teachers than lower level instructors. Is it true?
No, the truth is grimmer.

    As far as I know, all the articles are accessible online! :)

  2. No, they are not all accessible. Subscribe & purchase. It’ll cost you 7.00$usd. Slick advertising mag.

    This is one of the IDM’s newest flagships: Salvo Magazine (previously the Crux Project). With hyper-IDist government advocates & political rhetoricians there like John G. West, Rebecca Hagelin and Cameron Wybrow, it’s obviously a conservative Right-Wing wash for young adults. “The Fellowship of St. James is the publisher of Touchstone, Salvo, The Daily Devotional Guide, and The Calendar of the Christian Year.” It’s not just evangelicals, mind you, there are a few Catholics, one Jew and one Orthodox; the majority are Christian apologists and/or IDists. That’s not ad hom; it’s just ‘following the evidence where it leads.’

    Contrast it with http://www.thisviewoflife.com/ and Editor Jim Kushiner’s “Why We Fight” logic for Salvo and it’s no wonder why so many USAmericans, like many here at UD, feel themselves to be living in a ‘culture war’ where they see no way out except for either happily catching Expelled Syndrome or becoming atheists. Such black & white logic is on display for what BA77 says ‘WOW’.

    Salvo vs. This View of Life, however, reminds one of a little league team vs. an MLB division contender on the academic level. Undersized heroes to the ID community (though Beckwith certainly isn’t and has excellently refuted IDisms exaggerations), unfortuately, don’t translate into hits or runs, just idolising. Will Salvo *ever* gain the support of an organisation like the National Science Foundation when it is so obviously politically partisan Right-Leaning?

    Surely, a responsible middle ground between these two far right and far left dancing-partner extremes of scientistic (‘strictly [natural]scientific’) IDism and ‘new atheism’ can someday be found. But the way the DI’s leadership plays its antagonistic self-victimisation cards, no one should hold their breath.

  4. Here is the trick: no one wants to go with the lowest price education. We all know that the lower does not necessarily the better. But unfortunately not many have an option to choose. Unless of course they choose to study online, which I think is great. It is cheaper (but I do not know how much cheaper though), you are basically in charge of your classes and home assignments. Besides, it is very convenient to do home work online as you can easily get academic help at MyEssayService as they can write professional essays, term-papers, dissertations and so on. So yes, it is smarter to study online these days.
