The Future vs. Bloat

  1. Doesn’t GATT contain provisions on trade in services? Why would not educational services qualify?

    Unless accreditation agencies and employers can justify discrimination against credentials from foreign virtual schools which grant degrees based on credit by exam, competition between virtual schools should drive the cost of a college degree down to the cost of books and grading exams.

    Some philanthropist could break the NEA/AFT/AFSCME cartel’s hold on US K-PhD schooling by getting some poor nation to accredit virtual schools and promote a suit at the WTO to compel the US to accept degrees from these schools.
