For you homeschooling families out there and progressive education enthusiasts that are disenchanted by the often empty pomp and circumstance of an Ivy League degree. Zero Tuition College offers an interesting alternative to taking out huge loans and throwing down piles of cash for something you're not entirely convinced of.

Don't get me wrong, I disagree with the author of the article that states that higher education is the next big bubble to burst.  Worldwide, we have not even begin to feel the economic impact of increased access to secondary and tertiary education.  I do think, however, that some college options are not real options at all, and some college degrees are not worth the paper they're printed on.  Zero Tuition College is an alternative that follows the theoretical/technological path of the Khan Academy and the self-driven/independence path paved by Maria Montessori (among others).
