Outrun Change

We need to learn quickly to keep up with the massive change around us so we don't get run over. We need to outrun change.

$10,000 for a college degree? What a silly idea! Oops. It’s here.

I haven’t mentioned the efforts from the University of Texas system to create an option to get a college degree with a price point of $10,000.  Looks like they are making progress.

From Carpe Diem:  Markets in Everything: College Degree for < $10k.

ODESSA, TX — “Five bachelor’s degrees at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin got a new price tag of $10,000 last Wednesday when the UT System board of regents approved the Texas Science Scholar Program.  The program was developed in response to Gov. Rick Perry’s challenge for a “$10,000 degree” during his 2011 State of the State address.

One year of study currently costs students in these majors $6,452, totaling $25,808 for four years. Beginning in August, UTPB students interested in studying chemistry, computer science, geology, information systems or mathematics can work toward a bachelor’s degree for only $2,500 a year.”

Original article appears at the Midland Reporter Telegram, but going there generates an odd Adobe error, so I’ll not link to their site.  That’s probably why Carpe Diem didn’t have a link.
