Gaming, Linux, Programming by day. Atheism and tolerance by night. Sci-Fi television all hours of the day.
This is such horse crap (and I’m only avoiding stronger language because I reference my place of business later on).
Seriously, Minnesota. In what way does Coursera threaten your state’s residents? It’s video lectures and PDFs for which you get a certificate saying you tried your best.
Do you live in Minnesota? Fight this terrible infringement on your rights to LEARN.
I’ve just about had it with the United States making it more difficult for people to stuff their brains full of knowledge about anything other than religion. Coursera is an amazing step forward, and legislation like this makes me upset to be a citizen of this “land of the free”.
Bear in mind that I work for an organization that offers free financial education to people of all ages (youth can get it here, and adults here). I think @iheart45s may also feel strongly about this, as she too works for an organization that offers free education to those that need it.
Education is a big deal, and it’s something everyone should [be able to] take advantage of as much as possible, no matter their financial state. Education should be equally available to everyone.
Please, give me a good argument why this law makes any sort of sense. I’m just dying to hear it.
