    I can't believe President Crow is serious about helping students with "intellectual, spiritual,and physical" advancement when he promotes the test-score driven, corporate worker factory model of education. What will he cut out of the curriculum? Will students be free to pursue independent thought, side interests, community service, emotional and social growth, dual majors, and political activism? Not in the corporate feeder school model Gates, Walton, and company promote.

    Thanks DNews. Great to see this finally from a University President with vision. The current system is one born in the middle ages and developed primarily to keep knowledge secure and away from the student, so that it could be used by the education "guilds" for monetary gain. The costs of education to the masses should be and can be very low with outstanding results and achievement. t
