president obamaBy now it’s completely clear that President Obama makes education a high priority. Right along with jobs. So it should come as no surprise that Obama has proposed a plan that could benefit both of those efforts. His proposal is for the feds to spend $12 billion during the next 10 years in community colleges, focusing on:

  • Modernizing community college facilities
  • Increasing quality online courses, including making those free to the public

University of Texas San Antonio – 99 percent acceptance

University of Texas El Paso – 99 percent acceptance Read the rest of this entry »
