Affordable online school: New Charter University
One of my beefs with online education is the price. Schools that deliver learning online are not burdened with a lot of the costs associated with bricks and mortar schools, but often charge as though they had them. I like it that -- finally -- schools are starting to compete on price. That's a good thing for students, families, and society in general, especially when we are dealing with an increasing problem of students graduating with huge amounts of student debt. This is a school that has put together a plan (basically $199 a month) that allows students to finish undergraduate or masters programs for $6-7,000.
