I’ve got a piece on Slate today about “bargain” BAs and the predatory nature of “competency-based” “universities.” Read it now, before Western Governors University freaks out and tries to get me to retract. They have a lot of shills, and as such they have shill pieces in a lot of legitimate news outlets. Slate was brave enough to print this, so please read it. It’s not about my failures, or my butt, or anyone else’s butt, or the job market, or me in the least. It’s about students–and how they are getting ripped off every day.
