I am new to Idaho. I read your article and I am also against online courses. However one point I do have a problem with. I have never been to college but I have 25 years of experience in the classroom. I have proven to be a better teacher than ones I have taught with who have master degrees. I resent the fact that people are constantly trying to say that a degree automatically makes your opinion count more than someone like me. the past few years I have been constantly required to take many courses and have many outside people observe me in my classroom trying to brainwash me into accepting some "new" methods and ideas that are all a bunch of malarkey. These are from people who have been to college. Some with doctorates, who have very little classroom experience.
