FREE HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE U.S.A.Now it is possible to provide FREE HIGHER EDUCATION to all 21 million students in the USA. This is a PROPOSAL by me . Please comment .
1.- Now best 100 universities of USA have set up a NATIONAL UNIVERSITY .
2.- This 100 universities , including, Harvard, MIT, Stanford , Berkeley, Caltech, Princeton
have set up a consortium to provide free education to whole USA.
They will select all 100 member universities .
3.- Federal Government will provide funds of $ 1 BILLION FOR 5 YEARS to National
Federal Government will collect $ 5 billion in 5 years from 51 states,
proportionally with their population .
4.- National University will investigate and decide 10,000 ONLINE courses to be
developed by these 100 universities . Cost of development of each course will be $
Half of this will be paid to the university at the time of order, half will be paid at delivery
of course to National University ' s Platfrom .
5.- National University will decide what kinds of Degree Programs it will offer to USA
6.- Students will register with National University with the intention of obtaining a degree of
AA and BA.
All courses are completely free.
Only a small fee be collected from students when they take final exams.
7.- Upon registration by Internet , students will be assigned an advisor . Students with
advisor will set up a degree programs which is 20 courses for AA degre, and 40
courses for BA degree.
8.- All courses can be from any of the 100 universities within the consortium. Consortium
universities will provide all necessary online courses in perfect conditions, best in the
world, do very strict final examination and at the end will provide to successful students
a certificate of mastering of the course.
9.- National University will provide 3 credits for every certificates taken from member
10.- When students complete 20 courses with 3 credits each , decided by advisors, students
will be awarded an AA DEGREE OF NATIONAL UNIVERSITY .
when students complete 40 courses with 3 credits each students
will be awarded a BA DEGREE OF NATIONAL UNIVERSITY .
On each degree the name of the universities and courses taken from that university
will be written .
11.- Any college in the USA can accept the credits of NATIONAL UNIVERSTY so that tuition
of the college is decreased by 10 % for each course transferred from National
University since it is free .
12.- The cost of running online courses at the National University platform, such as
platform cost, revisions, maintenance of the course, any tutors program , will be paid by
States to the National University proportionally with their population . This may be around
$ 10 per year per student.
13.- It is foreseen that most colleges in the USA will be closed within 5-10 years due to free
HIGHER EDUCATION by National University . States may sell the land and buildings,
private sectors can liquidate its assets as appropriate . But they are free to stay open if
they can afford to run the school .
14.- The burden Federal Government for this project is
$ 5,000,000,000 / 21,000,000 students = $ 238 per student . Only once.
Then a small fee of around $ 10 per student for running the university can be paid by
States to National University.
Running cost of National University will be paid by 100 member universities
IMPLEMENTATION ;Before starting whole project a pilot run is recommended .
1.- Let Education Secretary ask a pilot for only a BA Degree in Business from edx .
2.- Let EDX create at least 50 online courses related to a degree of Business
Administration from its member universities . Already they have some courses .
3.- Let ES endorse this program so that people will have confidense in the program .
4.- Let students register, complete successfully 40 courses related to Business
Administration completely free then let EDX provide A BA DEGREE IN BUSINESS
ADMINISTRATION FROM EDX . All FREE
5.- If this program of degree providing free is successful, then we can go to second stage,
Federal Government start action for the above big project .
