State of Minnesota attempts to limit free acces to education Apparently the State of Minnesota (formerly a self-styled leader in innovation in education) has decided that like online gambling, free access to online education is illegal (citing an age old law requiring "permission" to offer education) and should stop at the states borders.
One wonders what the motivations might be? The threat posed to aging/expensive alternatives based in Minnesota may or may not be one of them.
