Can the Internet lower college costs?

"Chris Lehmann, principal of the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, has a lot of good ideas on what needs to be done to revamp the educational system. One area that’s going to need a serious overhaul is colleges and universities. Why? The current model just isn’t sustainable.

Speaking at the Supernova conference last week at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, Lehmann said:

I doubt my kids will have the college experience the same way we did. Most of us just can’t afford it and the system is going to break. College will be a hybrid online/offline experience."
