I recently saw a newsletter that mentioned a local online high school located in my state. I thought it might be interesting to those of you familiar with EJ's TECI theory.

I have taken a lot of online classes in college. Amusingly, they cost just as much, if not more, than regular classes despite the fact that you interact far, far less with an instructor and use only online resources.

Public schools chief function was to condition the young to the regimentation of blue collar jobs. On-line schooling - sans clock discipline, in-class behavior discipline, etc. - all workplace necessities - suggests those daze are over. An enormous 'surplus army of workers' (with little industrial employment opportunities) means instructing them in fundamental labor discipline isn't necessary for shift work at the Big Mac. There's plenty, including Grandma and Grandpa, who will take your place if you can't 'fit in'.
