    Glen, my BS (blatant statement) detectors also activate when I hear sounds from the right. The Texas plan mentioned in the Fox News article says that a student would have to have one year of college (30 credits) before entering the program and spending one year at a junior college and then two years at a four-year school for $3333/year if grade minimums are maintained. That’s a great deal for the student. But where does the rest of the money come from? The state of Texas? I find that hard to believe.

    Taking some courses online could help reduce costs, but chemistry majors need to be in actual labs.

    It is unfortunate that the acronym “MOOC” is pronounced “mook”; it gives the concept a negative connotation.

    ‘Tis a bit off topic, but your comment on cost of lab space and infrastructure reminded me of this post by Dean Dad:

    Outside the U.S., B.A.s under 10K are the norm, even at internationally-prestigious schools. Of course, there is a lot of public funding behind that, but it is certainly not an impossible goal.
