That's a pretty interesting development. These reporters have covered all their bases for what this Wal-Mart program is going to look like, but they don't cover the trend toward online higher-ed and its ramifications. Some experts from the education field would have rounded out this story.
Hats off to Wal-Mart for helping out their employees, but I think I liked the 20th century better, when employees of big companies got health insurance instead of classes online.
An noteworthy development in the field of higher education. This article provides a basic understanding of this news. However, there is much current debate about quality and ethics regarding for-profit higher education -- especially when it comes to tuition -- as some students at other for-profit institutions are graduating with high debt levels and little job prospects; I would have like the report to have addressed this a bit and also have spoken to other stakeholders.
