A better solution is coming if we manage it right. The internet is quickly becoming the classroom of the future. Instead of thousands of students being taught something by thousands of teachers, it’s going to boil down to all of the students being taught by the very cream of the crop teachers over an internet connection. It will be education at your own pace right there over your I-Phone. This IS the future. The cost of an excellent college education will go down tremendously. Only a few universities will be needed to deliver the future college degree and the amount of buildings and land they will need is next to nothing compared to today. Pay these debts from selling off all of these buildings and land and provide a small pension to all of the educators whose jobs will disappear.
