I like what Obama said regarding his economic plan to create 2.5 mil jobs by rebuilding infrastructure (I recently bought LAYN, fun stock) and MODERNIZING schools, I hope that this means good things for LRN it's like like the next bailouts will be where they below, in our schools and in our communities.
I think very highly of this school - this should be very successful -hopefully word of mouth works best. However I really hate to burst peoples bubble but Obama and the Dem Congress have absolutely no inclination to support online schools particularly at the secondary levels. Over 1 billion was spent on getting Dems of which hundreds of millions - I think around 200million came from unions.
Guess what - they want something and right now that would be the continued elimation of charter and independant schools - I believe they are in a law suit right now with Chicago unions. I wish I will be proven wrong with the new admin - but it is amazing how people don't see the political forces lining up and the big money to protect monopolies.
This product will sell itself without fed aid -and if enough people start to follow the politics as online learning takes off that would be very beneficial. To get an idea look at the charter school fights and the tactics. In the end great products will win - but don't be misled that certain politicians feel for your plight.
