Requiring schools to burden the work of getting approval in every state they serve online students and to meet the needs of each individual state requirements for licensure just adds to the bloat if administration costs that increase tuition.
Another idea: the DOE should make an online course that empowers students with knowledge and skills needed to assess an online course and seek out what their state requires for licensure. Imagine giving students the power to assess the programs themselves.
its another way to give the power of learning back to students. They need to be involved in their education more than they are.
