Now, in the sphere of higher education, we often talk about the potential for OER to save students billions of dollars in textbook costs, but what's happened at Williamsfield since the switch reveals that the value of OER over traditional learning materials extends far beyond the difference in price.
It's time to ask: When the Department of Education refuses to enforce its own laws, who pays the price? Right now, the answer is simple: hundreds of thousands of students around the country. It's time for that to change -- but it won't if Secretary Arne Duncan keeps blaming Congress for his own Department's failures.
The Department of Education (DOE) has finally decided to adapt to the times. Starting this fall, New York City Public School health educators will be able to show students how to properly put on a condom. This, after years of preaching to students the importance of practicing abstinence or safe sex.
