Schools and TV dinners

Fresca suggested in a comment that virtual schools are to school as TV dinners are to dinner. Right on.

And that made me realize: the TV dinner and the virtual school proceed from the same model: one person, in front of a screen. Get out your laptop, or TV tray; it’s time for “school,” or “dinner.”

So "classes" taken on-line are no good?

I’m a strong believer in what I like to call offline, real-presence education. If it’s good enough for the economic elite, it’s good enough for the rest of us. :)

Most classes could just as easily be replaced with recorded lectures and with tutoring centers for any that have questions.

Undergrads already are teaching many of the classes anyway at premium or your elite institutions.

Not my model of education, sorry.
