This is an attempt to bring the cost of worldwide accredited
university degree training down to $1 per year or less by all
countries, and states sharing podcast course costs, and to
provide links to thousands of free courses from many
countries, for all ages, to improve course learning, and to
implement the success of this economic concept. The
purpose of this site is to make your life better. I care about

Group sourcing: = (group brainstorming)

A place for your ideas and comments will be created on this
website. Together, and by countries and states cooperating
in this way, we can reduce the cost of education to all people.
(Today's enemy is tomorrow's friend.) The math and
reasoning for this conclusion is simple.

How schooling for a bachelor's degree could cost you $1 a year or less

The typically highest wages that a U.S. professor gets is
$212,000. per year (salaries vary from $30,000 to $212,000) for
teaching 1 to 6 courses. (Professor salaries:

Professors Salaries Worldwide--Exterior Link

Some professors
get $1,800 for teaching one course, but in
our case more is
needed and expected from each one course

College textbook writers rarely earns more than $100,000 total

for one textbook, ($25,000 would be the total earnings for a
very successful textbook. and $10,000 is a typical total
earnings for a textbook). (Occupational Outlook Handbook,
2010-11 Edition External Link--Copy and Paste in Google

Authors Salary External Link

Software for this same course could cost $200,000, more or
less, and management fees to tie all this together could cost
$100,000 for each course. Thus, the potential one-course
of $600,000 dollars. Forty courses are required for a
of science, and 40 x $600,000 = $24,000,000 is the
cost of forty courses.

But, if you had 80 courses you could cover many of the
population's requirements for various bachelor degree
courses, and this would mean $48,000,000 would need to be
spent, each year, with added translations costs, to educate
most of the world's population to the bachelor level. This cost
would include on line textbooks, in print, braille, or voice.
(These stated costs, are speculations, which can be
experimentally determined)

There are about 313,000,000 people in the U.S. If each person
paid about 15+ cents, each year, for the right to be educated
throughout his or her life, and took all or any, of the right
combination of 80 selected podcast courses, to get her/his
desired accredited bachelor's degree, these people would have
paid an amount equal to the cost of their podcast courses.
($48,000,000 / 313,000,000 = 15+ cents.) The courses could be
taken in the comfort of one's home, in high schools, or
elsewhere over the Internet from a podcast. This procedure
would decrease the cost of living to everyone, including
people who never had any schooling, because the educated
could then charge less for their work, the supply (number of
educated) would be greater, and the cost of life would go
down, and the quality would go up.

Or, there are 1,500,000,000 English speaking people and
1,300,000,000 Mandarin Chinese. If each of these
2,800,000,000 people wanted to be educated in English the
cost would be paid if each of these people were taxed less
than two cents each year, for his/her bachelor's degree.
Incidentally, there are more English speaking people in
China than in the U.S.A.

Now there would be additional student access and
processing fees that would be needed to be met if all these
people actually signed up as every costs must be paid.
Experimentation would determine a final cost, hopefully

Other-language speaking countries could translate podcast
courses, modifying them to suit their individual language and
cultural needs, and if their citizens took these same podcast
courses, much of the world's education problems would be
solved, and cost would no longer prevent people from getting
the job they wanted which is now blocked because people do
not have the money or time to go to college, and blocked by
licensing laws which require a degree before one can go
in school, or even get a wanted job. This, to some
happens in all nations.

How would you test these students so they could get an
accredited degree? After studying each individual course,
their lesson tests on that course, and feeling ready
that final, each student could be tested on their home
or at high schools, etc, while being photographed
with face, iris,
finger, or key stroke identifying software.

The many final test questions of a large bank of questions,
would be randomly re-mixed after each test taker. The
software would notify the accrediting entity when
each person
had passed individual finals, and when the
required number
of course finals have been passed each
student would get
their bachelor degree from a course
accrediting entity
recognized by all countries, state and
federal government, and
hopefully by all educational
institutions as meeting their
school requirements, life would
be enriched, simplified, and
cost drastically less. (More
educated males and females have
fewer children.This could
eliminate population runaway growth,
and cause less global
warming, and the oceans from rising
over our heads)

Currently people travel to their universities, or schools to get
their education. Much gas, money and time is consumed that
could be saved to learn. In their 10 minutes to two hour trip to
class and back, lives are risked in traffic, on average, wasting
a half gallon of gas traveling back and forth, spending up to
2 hours daily in traffic, walking between classes, waiting for
class to start, and getting back home.

In a modern, efficient podcast world this waste is eliminated.
Now thousand of professors give the same lecture on the
subject, in the same type of buildings, needing grounds
building maintenance, police service, administrative
plumbing, etc. One podcast can replace this
expensive duplication of the same courses, waste, and
all these
thousands of then unneeded trips, buildings,
sidewalks, grounds service people, and
professors, then would
be freed to do other important work
elsewhere and this would
save trillions. This reduced cost
would make it possible for
the poorest of poor to be

In some countries up to 19 % of their budget is spent
of wasteful education methods, and this prevents
people from
fulfilling their other equally important personal
needs. (Of an
estimated $l.l trillion being spent nationwide
in the U.S. on
education, at all levels, for school year 2009
-2010, a substantial
majority came from State, local, and
private sources.

Podcasts could
cut educational cost  dramatically. It is the
customers of students who finally,actually
pay for the
students high education costs and this makes the
cost of
life very expensive. A study being carried out by the

geographer, Ronald Dorn at Arizona State University
that students who use free online textbooks
perform as well
academically as students who buy expensive
copies from
traditional publishers. India, China and other
countries could
also create courses and software. South
Korea already has

How much money would international students attending
schools save every year if the total number of English
speaking people (1,500,000,000 of them) shared the cost of
course podcasts ($48,000,000) and the international
used those courses for their education by
studying, on their
computer, in their home instead of going
to brick and mortar
U.S. schools? Answer: Total spent by
U.S. International
students / number of international
students equals amount
spent by each student =
$17,600,000,000 / 671,616 = $26,206
= (spending per student
rounded ). But with all English
speaking people sharing the
cost of podcasts the total
spending would have been =
number of students times the yearly cost
of educating each
student = 671,616 X $.03 = $20,148. If the
podcasts were used
= $17,600,000,000 - $20,148 =
$17,599,979,852 would have
been saved by people sharing the
costs of podcasts, and
this saving is just for international
students. Total savings
world wide would be trillions if people
studied at home and
used podcasts instead of going to brick-
and-mortar schools.
(source of total spent by international
U.S. students is
Peggy Blumenthal, executive vice president
of the Institute
of International Education, who notes that
students spend an estimated $17.6-billion in the
economy in 2008-9.

If this same podcast system was used for courses from
kindergarten through 12th. grade, assuming 5 podcast
courses, per year, per grade at $600,000 per course, the 65
additional podcast courses would cost $39,000,000 for a
total cost of $39 + $48 million = $87,000,000 to educate each
individual with podcasts from kindergarten through college.
(This includes the cost of all e-textbooks) If all the
2,800,000,000 combined Mandarin Chinese, and English
Speaking people paid $87,000,000 / 2,800.000,000 people =
cents. Each person would have payed 3.1 cents per year
their total education. But, if only U.S. residents paid the
Million divided by 313,000,000 residents, each U.S.person
would pay 27+ cents, each year for their total podcast
education from kindergarten through college.

Primary and Secondary teachers could have their students
listen to these podcast courses, and spend their own class
time clarifying the subjects. Classes could be larger, of much
quality, substitutes could be mostly eliminated, and as
more research and money would have been put into
course, quality would be higher. Parents, students,
schoolers and prisoners could listen to that days class
repeatedly, on the Internet, that night, while sick in bed, or at
any time.

A Universal Internet Language would then have been created,
trillions would have been saved, (populations and world
warming would have been decreased because educated
men and women have less children), and the possibility of a
more pleasant life would occur. All this because of world
group buying, and a cooperative, loving spirit. Now 50 states
and all governments are duplication each other efforts and
wasting and loosing billions of their taxpayer's money by
duplicating the same courses 17,036 times in that
many world-wide colleges, and there are over 16,000
school boards in the U. S. with much duplication of
work--External Link

An interesting video indicating how teachers time could be
saved insuring quality teaching with podcasts thus class
teachers time could be used for in-class clarification instead
just lecturing, and the software in these interactive
courses could
immediately tell the teacher what the student
had not
understood, and courses would also be available for
home study.

also provide these same courses, but much faster than would be ready to do.

The average 4 year degree student spends $1916 dollars just
for gas in their 1095 days of travel back and forth to school,
(at a half gallon of gas per day with $3.50 gallon gas,) These
same brick-and-mortar students waste 2190 hours in their 4
years of schooling, at 2 hours per day, while traveling back
and forth to school and waiting for class to start. This is more
time than the average student spends in study to get their 4
year degree. All governments are wasting their citizens
money by colluding with their educational lobbies
to prevent

A partial ultimate Course content wish list

a. The lecture vocabulary would be given before a lecture with
the pronunciations and definitions of terms, that can be
or clicked on.

b. The preliminary background knowledge required for
understanding the lecture, and a link to this knowledge
in the lecture text, can be clicked on or skipped.

c. Possibly many more than the number of course lectures
the average school provides with much more detailed
background knowledge which can be discussed (or linked

d. Intelligent Software that all by itself can answer a student's
questions on a particular subject and an awareness, by the
software, of the student's missing background knowledge
the questions asked, and a direct link to that source.
On the
TV game show Jeopardy, a computer called "Watson"
used to challenge the best human minds, and with
limited to one course, (instead of 10,000,000
documents that
"Watson" was programmed with) why can't
this goal be
achieved? This would eliminate the need to ask
personally to a frequently unavailable professor
teaching assistant.

e. Each computer course links to websites so that questions
can be asked on the Internet, with other students answering
when the questions have not been answered by course

f. All textbooks would be included online and any word that is
clicked on would be defined, and pronounced. If a page number
in the index is clicked on, you are taken directly to that page.

g. Interactive software could be available.

h. Public laboratories available to citizens and
students (to complete course exercises given by schools
for credit) in many cities. (one such lab exist in New
York City now}

h. -2 A podcast virtual teaching laboratory
in which one learns
much as is learned in an MIT Laboratory,
but possibly more,
and with video displays.

i. Your favorite Icon as your virtual teacher, Albert Einstein,
Isaac Newton, Madam Curie, etc.

j. In your comments, you could add to this course content
wish list your additional wish list items.

It would be ideal that a course language could be

translated to all languages at the click of a key, and this might
someday happen. If all 1.5 billion English speaking people
shared the $48,000,000 cost of these 80 courses all of
Harvard's 6,700 undergraduates could be educated for a total
cost of $215 or
about 3.2 cents each year instead of $50,000
or a total cost of $335,000,000. (Harvards
undergraduates would save, in 4 years, $1,339,999,140.

Any university, primary, or high school could not afford to
the course cost of this ultimate course education wish
just their own in school use, but with countries
sharing these
costs are affordable. Education for 
bachelor degrees, primary, and high
school podcasts
courses can be provided for pennies that
would be superior
to existing courses in the current brick-and
-mortar schools,
and China's, India's, and the world's educational
would be solved.

There is a shortage of high school science teachers. Podcast
courses would solve this problem, and provide, podcast
to replace absent teachers, as well as providing
courses on
unavailable subjects, or courses too short to
take a whole
semester. Sick people, people that cannot leave
their homes,
the prison population, and trades people,
(including vocational
training) could all learn in their current
location, and very
advanced high school students could get
their bachelor degree
before finishing the 12th grade.

Legislators are now protecting brick-and-mortar schools
from competition by now requiring that school have a campus.
This gives the legislatures money or other awards for this
criminal act but robs you of the opportunity of a reasonable
cost education, which anyone could afford.These laws need
to be overturned.

What do you, we, need to do to provide inexpensive, quality
education, and overcome any educational lobby or other
political resistance to this change? To start, you could
advertise by spreading the word, on the social media of this
educational method and website, (to get people started!!!!!!)
Or, you could walk, at your college campus, on the PUBLIC
sidewalk, adjoining the PUBLIC street, and exercise your
PEACEFUL, free speech rights with this sign. How schooling
a bachelor degree could cost $1 a year or less as
 explained in:

How do schools,
businesses, and Doctors  misuse governments
eliminate their competition and increase your prices?

If governments, states, Democrats, Republican,
and Independents, would let people share course costs,
and not
block people from getting an accredited education,
or a wanted
job, which they all do now, (encouraged by
most professions, t
rades, and labor unions promoting
obstructive licensing to reduce
their competition,
(in their own trade or profession) by requiring irrelevant
education, delayed field
entry, unnecessary high entry costs,
and thus increase their
charges to you), all people
themselves could afford
to get an accredited education
without government help. With K-12 and college podcasts
teacher's homework and
grading would be drastically
reduced and teachers would be more rested for
important school teaching)

Examples of deceitful rules at all occupation levels, that also
prevent employees from starting their own business, raises
unemployment, and increasing your cost of life:

a. State law requires House painters in Massachusetts to work
for a painting company for 4 years before they can take a
test that allows them to use ladders and staging, this
can be
learned in 1 day. (This legal ruling prevents students
from competing,
earning summer money, and cheaply
painting your house.

b. Roofers in Florida must work 4 years with a contractor
(before it was no years), and prices were as low as 8 cents per
square foot) to pass a test that many roofers who worked 30
years, in other states, can't pass, and learn all types of roofing
work, instead of just the kind they want to do, (result after
legislation: prices are 3 times higher and many people learn
do their own roof in two hours. Of course, none of the then
existing Florida roofers had to take any test at all, and all the
finished roofs continued to be inspected after completion, as
before, indicating no need at all for prior testing.)

c. Dentists are required to have 9 years of education to do
procedures that Alaska, New Zealand, and many other
allow with 2 years of training (with equal skill, as
research proved),
as indicated in Exterior Link
$1000 to $3000. U. S. root canals can
cost as little $65
dollars in India. (In fact, a few Indian dentists
do root canals for $18., as one Indian dentist told me.)

d. Automobile labor unions forced wages up to $70.

dollars per hour (including benefits), while minimum
wages were around $7 dollars per hour) thus U.S. car
manufactures could no longer compete with foreign
manufactures and we lost our car inductry.

e. U. S., and Canadian Doctors and dentists are required to
tests that in many years, only 1/3 pass, and to have 4
years of
college before medical school while in most
countries students
start medical school after high school,
learn everything they need
to know, and thus get 4 more
years of practice in their lifetime as
doctors, and U.S.
technicians are prevented from doing simple
procedures that the Veterans Administration, and many

other countries encourage. (All this is how they, and the
government, keep your prices high, get their treats,
and eliminate
competition from low cost sources). My father,
board certified in
2 specialties, would play golf 3 days a week
while I , at 17 years
of age, would put a green liquid in his
patients eyes, fold their
eye lid over and remove any irritating
particles from these patient
eyes, free of change. (Anyone
can do this with 2 minutes training,
and not need the 24 years
of education he had. Many other daily done
procedures are
just a simple)

f. Legislators are now protecting brick-and-mortar schools
competition by now requiring that school have a
campus. (What
grass are they smoking?) Total spending on
U. S. education,
from all sources, and including all levels is
about 1.13 trillion
yearly, mostly for buildings and
administration. Exterior link

g. U.S. citizens are taxed to support a military industrial
that consumes 6.61 times more of its dollars than
the 2nd biggest
spending nation does. (661 billion for U. S.
and 100 billion for
China). Just the cost of one air craft carrier,
5 billion
, cost the
same as 104 years of 80 bachelor degree
podcast courses).
Exterior Link

h. Or, the U.S. Government could educate 2.8 billion English,
and Mandarin speaking people for up to 858
years with the
$41.2 billion in Pell Grants that were
scheduled to educate
only 9.6 million U.S. students for
1 year. ($41.200,000,000 /
$48 million, (1 year Pell Grant
Funds / the yearly cost of 80
bachelor degree podcast
courses = 858+ years of college

It does not always pay to put yourself, your team, your state,
your country, your religion, always
ahead of
others, and the
earth. In the end YOU lose.
Cooperation beats the hell out of
competition in this
podcast case.

I like my country as much as you do but I am not blind! Is it
any wonder U.S. prices cannot compete with other countries,
and that the U.S, is loosing most of its industries because of
these anti-competitive practices???

Is YOUR Government screwing students and taxpayers to
eliminate competition for education lobbies, and brick-and
mortar universities?

The table shows the yearly cost, per student of getting a
College Degree, and the cost of kindergarten through High
School courses in countries or states of various sizes, (with
buying.) It costs $48,000,000 to provide the educational
material, for 80 Bachelor Degree College Courses, and
$39,000,000 for kindergarten through high school, or
$87,000,000 for both combined
if e-books and lectures are
provided by podcast over
the Internet. The 9,600,000 Pell
Grant Recipients, with sharing, could pay these cost with
$5.00, and $4.06, and $9.06. and save the $41,000,000,000
 of the 2012 taxpayers money spent on Pell Grants, but
colleges would object because this money is really
used to
fund the wasteful practices of the states and colleges.

*With extra large classes some electronic and processing fees

The reason why costs in brick-and-mortar schools, and high
schools is so
expensive is because each type of the same
courses are needlessly
being recreated, each year, about
4,168 times for this many U.S.
colleges, 17,036 times for the
worldwide colleges and 18,435
times only for this many U.S.
high schools, and there are 16,216 various kinds of state
school boards in the 50 states, and the 50 states
are also 
duplicating each others work, to different degrees. Exterior Link

There are 100,000 schools on earth that duplicate education
courses. The class group size is
sometimes as small as ten
students per course, Students, and tax payers
are charged
for the real estate and other costs schools incur,
explained in Re-

inventing, duplicating the education course wheel by all
countries, state, and federal governments, not sharing
costs, the 16,216 school boards, and palatial buildings
are the major causes of high education costs. These are the
reason that many people can not get an education. Stopping
this waste worldwide would save many billions of dollars
every year.

If you care about the students who can not afford to go to
college, and the waste in taxes at the state and federal level
will call the media, your state, federal presidents,
senators, and representatives and explain how
your state and
federal government could save billions that
are wasted on
students, and governments dupicated efforts,
and thus reduce the taxes in both the state and federal

government and make it possible for everyone to go to
no matter what their income was (as indicated in
the yellow
chart). Bring this issue up at any political
meeting and ask
contentants to respond and tell you what
they can and will do
about this issue. Have some courage
and character and do this!
(no matter what your age is or
the country you live in).

don't tell me that regular college and K-12 courses
would be as
good as $600,000 courses that have thousand
more hours of
work on them, have video, variable audio,
software to
answer question, practice graded tests,
produced in voice,
Braille, in bold, variable print, with the
index linked to the text
pages, words linked to definitions,
are worked on again and
again in every way, are interactive,
have constant peer to peer review, and can be listened to

repeatedly at home, in prison, on the media, yet cost
students pennies with group
buying. Some professors get
$1,800 for their course. How
much time, and money do they
have to do all all this work?

How could we, the students, solve the high-cost-education-problem?

By establishing a crowd-funded 501(C)3 non-profit
endowment to create 145, courses from kindergarten
through a bachelor degree, available free, on the Internet
to all of the world's students, 100,000 colleges, and k-12
schools. These courses, in text, voice, Braille with e-
books could be modified by any school or country,
with some undecided restrictions, to meet their
educational, social, language, religious, needs and
preferences. Start-up schools would already have these
courses ready for their use.
Then we could start a coop-
student university, and get prices of a year of bachelor
-degree training down to costs all students can afford.

These courses would be constructed to contain the
spirit and instructional methods intuited, or suggested
in the following article.

Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught Exterior Link

Students can not take in and process all of the info in
a typical lecture. Course content needs clarification,
and technology change, peer to peer review etc.

There are over 17,036 worldwide colleges, including
4,168+ U.S. colleges, and 18,435 U.S. high schools,
with at least 16,000 school boards just in the 50 U.S.
states. Worldwide, the estimated 100,000 k-12 and
tertiary schools are all creating different versions of
the same courses, year after year, reinventing the
education-course-wheel, often in thousands of palatial
buildings, and lots, used only part of the year. This is
wastefully expensive as we now have podcasts, and
the same improved, more complete podcast-courses
can be shared with billions, over the Internet, and thus
eliminate the expense of thousand of buildings,
duplicated courses, and allow education to continue
all year round, costing much less, because of

Now huge endowments are collected and wasted with
students typically getting only 1% to 4.6 % of these
funds. ($411 billion is the total U.S. endowments) This
amount could
pay for 4724 years of course costs for
most of the world's education from kindergarten to a
bachelor degree ($411,000,000,000/$87,000,000 = 4724
years), or
Harvard's endowment ($31.728 billion)
would pay for 367 years, and MIT's endowment,

($9.713 billion)
111 years. (73 colleges could educate
all of earth's students from kindergarten to a bachelor
degree for 11 or more years with the money they have
in their endowment funds. Incidentally, we could save
billions in taxpayers and endowors collective taxes with
the then decreased amounts needed for education with
podcasts, and thus eliminate the 1 Trillion student owe.)

List of endowment amounts held by colleges:

Small, duplicated course classes is the normal way
has occurred, and this resulted in a year of
college costing up to $55,000. These practices must be
largely changed if student fees are to be reduced.

For most students we need only 145 core courses, 80
bachelor courses for the 17,036 worldwide colleges
and 65 courses for the worldwide 82,964 K-12 schools.
Podcasts allow repeated in school and home viewing.
At $600,000 x145 for each of these superior courses =
$87,000,000, equals the total course-cost for the
worldwide schools, or $870 per school, with
an average cost of only $6 per school-course when
sharing occurs.

But, if all of the courses are duplicated and recreated,
in each school, as they are now, and these teachers
are paid the lowest I have heard paid to a teacher for
their courses which is $1,800, the yearly duplicating
equals $12,159,972,000 instead of $87,000,000
for 145 non-duplicated, more expensive and complete
courses. Course-costs must be determined by research.

The Math, if you want to review it.
(number of worldwide colleges x the number of college
core courses, x
course cost) + (number of worldwide
k-12 schools, x number of k-12 core courses x course
costs) =
(17,036x 80 x $$1,800)+ (82,964 x 65 x $1,800.) =
$12,159,972,000 = the duplicating cost for the 100,000

The U.S.alone gives $41,200,000,000 in Pell Grants to
9,600,000 U.S. college students.
This cost could be
largely eliminated with podcasts. So,
$41,200,000,000 +
$12,159,972,000 = $53,359,972,000
- 87,000,000 = $53,272,972,000 saved plus billion in
other student cost.

The Internet and podcast technology has
eliminated the need for so many buildings, and
duplicated courses. One does not have to leave
their home, travel to another state to be educated,
or waste 2 hours per day going back and forth to
school, burning all that gas and waiting for class
to start.

The individual's course-cost of schooling from
kindergarten to a bachelor degree equals the
course-cost including e-books, divided by the
group-size taking those courses.=

Paying Groups                    Sharing Cost Yearly
One Person                                        $87,000,000
9,600.000 Pell Grant Recipients       $9.06
19,700,000 U.S. College Students    $4.42
313,000,000 U.S. Residents              $ .28
1,339,724,852 China Residents           .07
1,210,193,422 India
Residents            .07
1,500,000,000 All English Speakers   .06
452,480,979 All Spanish Speakers     .20
(Some additional fees may be needed as
determined by trial and error.)

We, the students, could start an endowment to provide
free, updated yearly, core, k-2 to Bachelor degree
courses with, e-books,
video, audio, Braille, peer to
peer review etc.,
for the 100,000 thousand k-12 and
tertiary world-wide
schools. These more complete
courses would drastically reduce all of the yearly,

course duplication in these public and private
schools, and allow each school to modify these
courses to fit their language, cultural,
and educational
preferences, with some undetermined restrictions, thus
save students and governments billions, over the years.

we could start a coop-student university, and get
prices of a year of bachelor-degree training down to
fees all students can afford.

There is No free education student's nipple!
A peaceful
voters revolt is needed! Students and parents
should start a student-parents-taxpayers-
University, (their own university) to drive prices from
unaffordable high of $55,000 per year to less than a $1.00
per year.

Schools use their political power, and treats to buy all
governments, and protect their wasteful practices and
economic interests as most economic groups do. This in
true in China, India, Russia, UK, U.S., etc. Why would you
expect otherwise? Most businesses, trades, and special
interests do the same. Thus, you need to establish an
educational organization that benefits you, the students,
parents, and taxpayers by providing low cost superior
education. This is more possible now, with podcasts,t hat
you see on your computer than it has ever been. By using
technology to eliminate, real estate, teaching, testing,
duplication, travel and labor cost, having huge class

courses, and using group buying these goals can be
easily reached.

There are 19,700,000 U.S. university students, or about
75.200,000 parent of students, and student voters plus
most other
U.S. taxpayers whose taxes would be reduced
by lower education costs, much more than half the
population. This means that a large block
of the U.S.
does not want a government that purposely
increase education costs and force irrelevant high cost
education that prevents people from working by
denying licenses to work by creating irrational rules
and requirements that are made only for the purpose of
limiting competion for educational lobbies, the graft
and treat providing groups.

We need to get presidents, governors, legislation, and
judges that pevent competition, out of office, and insure
a government that allows
education everyone can afford,
and costs pennies. There are 17,036 worldwide colleges,
each duplicating what the others are teaching, re-inventing
the college-education-course-wheel 17,036 times each year
in that many colleges. This causes expensive wasteful
education that not much effort and
content has been put
into. Podcasts eliminates this wasteful practice.

By sharing course recordings, you could get higher quality,
complete college education in your home that is
beneficial, constructive, purposeful, affordable to everyone.

The yearly SHARED COST per person in the indicated
groups: =
cost of courses/ divided by the group size.

1. $48,000,000 / 19,700,000 college students = $2.43 yearly
cost in the U.S. if only college students paid all the costs.

2. $48,000,000 / U.S. population = $48,000,000 / 313,000,000
= 15+
cents instead of $55,000 tuition, if all U.S. residents
paid 15+ cents, everyone could take the 80 courses.

3. $48,000,000 / 1.5 billion English Speaking people =
3+ cents
yearly if all English speaking people shared the
80 bachelor degree courses.

(Some years as much as $41.2 billion has been scheduled
to pay for only 9.6
Million U.S. college student's Pell
Grants with money taken
from taxpayers which mostly
goes to colleges
, not to students.) $41.2 billion minus $48
million equals a saving of $41,152,000,000, or a saving of
$464 dollars for each of the 88,568,468 U.S.
taxpayers who yearly recently paid any tax at all.
This is a calculation from information on which you can verify by re-calculating.
Education with Podcasts this way could educate
U.S. people instead of only the 9.6
million Pell Grant students that were educated, or
1,500,000,000 English speaking people could be
educated for the same $48,000,000.

A student-education-coop, not hard wired to be a university,
needed, as long as degree granting is achieved. This
could be
a: 1. Course management system, 2. Learning
systems, 3. Programmed learning system,
4. Publishers of
courses that include the same course they
publish textbook for,
and 5. Yes, and even organizations
sometimes called a
university, college, or school could
educate and provide degree
granting, as long as they are
not run just for the benefit of the
schools and the

These stated costs would include on-line textbooks, and
be more complete than any course
you have ever taken,
have thousands more hours of work on
them, have video,
variable audio, have software to answer
questions, practice
graded tests, produced in voice, Braille, in
bold variable
print, with the index linked to the text pages, words
to definitions, are worked on again and again in every way,

are interactive, have peer to peer review and can be listened
to repeatedly, yet cost
students pennies with group buying.

We need a peaceful students, voters revolt in the U.S.,
India, etc., and a students and parents coop-
University. Lobbies will resist our
every effort, but we will
. Bring this issue up in political meetings.
Education does not need to keep you,
parents, and
taxpayers in dept for years.

college-level material acquired through general academic
instructions, independent study or extracurricular work, in
five general subject areas: English, history, languages,
mathematics and science, and will allow a college to give
you college credit in each passed subjects, if they are
willing. You could reduce the cost of your education by
studying these 20 subjects, on your own, and thus save
the course charge for the passed course subjects, and
could verify this by calling various colleges of your choice.

Very little of Endowment Funds go to Students. What
could YOU do to change this, or reduce student costs?

Total Value of U.S. Endowments to colleges and
Universities equals $411 billion, with 76 of these
institutions having total endowment assets of more
than one
billion. Harvard University alone, has $32 billion.
The average payout to education issies is 4.6% per year
of the total endowment assets, with the
larger endowed
colleges paying only 4.4% on average,
but some pay much
less of their total endowed assets.
Students get very little
of the money given. 

List of U.S. Colleges and Universities by endowments
Per college, Per student, and by growth. Each of these
73 colleges could provide the courses to educate all of
earth's students from kindergarten to a bachelor degree
for 11 or more years with the money they have in their
endowment funds.

The Purposes and Uses of Endowments vary with giver and
receiver, with students getting very little of the money given.

Various measures of PellGrants spending, through the years Exterior Links
(PellGrant Recipients increased from 1.9 million in 1976-77 to
9.6 million in 2012-13, and spending increased from 5.6 billion
in 1976-77 to $41.2 billion in 2012-13.

Publishers could create $1 a year, and less bachelor degree + K-12 courses

Publishers could be contracted to yearly produce state and
federal government accredited podcast courses in the same
education specialty in which they currently produce textbooks.

Each superior, more complete podcast course would be in voice,
bold clear print, or braille, changeable to other languages with
each chapter being able of being instantly updated from new
knowledge, have peer to peer review, and from learning from
the students question how
text could be improved to increase
understanding. Software
could answer questions and provide
lacking knowledge
indicated by student queries. E-book
indexes could be linked
to text pages, interactive text to
pronounced definitions, have
art work, and practice chapter

A course accrediting agency could give the student credit as
each course is taken and passed at home, at their local high
school, or on a computer linked to anti-cheating software.
each student has taken a test the large bank of final
would be remixed, and when the required number
of courses
is passed each person would get their degree.

Universities could not afford and do not produce a course of
this quality for their few hundred people, but with group buying,
podcast education would have a quality not now available in
University that could be listened to repeatedly. This would
dramatically reduce the cost and improve the quality of
to people and their governments, and save trillions.

Ideally, these courses would not be copyrighted, could be
modified to suit the use of any people, country, business, or
person, thus have much greater utility, and not be required to
be totally created again and again for different users.

With 80 bachelor degree podcast courses covering many of
needs of various college degrees, and 65 K-12 courses,
kindergarten to 12 grade costing $87,000,000 @
each, many peoples educational needs would be met
at a cost of only pennies with large cooperative buying by the
1.5 English speaking people or the 313,000,000 U.S. residents

Publishers Costs:

64% to 67% of the cost of a new textbook goes to the
publisher, 9% to 12% to the author, 2.5% to the freight
company, 9% to 22.7% to the store or college, and 12.5% to
the bookstore, (University of Phoenix converted to electronic
books years ago, to reduce costs and compete for students.)
Many publishers costs could be eliminated by countries,
states, cities, public and private school joining together to
select an author and produce the same online, open course
textbooks in the millions, which could be modified to satisfy
local requirements, and cost could be much, much, much less.

Textbook finding Suggestions from Students

1. Provide multiple copies of each college assigned
textbook in the library.

2. Students donate their used course text at the end of the
course to the library. (if the library will shelf your book)

3. Share your copy on different study days. Ask professors
to put their copy for students in the school library.

4. Search through the free OCW (online course ware) for
textbooks used in the course area of your interest, and learn
from that on line textbook used in the free course, so you will
have the knowledge you need in your textbook-less course:
Example: Calculus Online Textbook, (with instructors, manual,
guide and video, from "MIT OpenCourseWare")

5. Students, themselves should provide master lists of
online free textbooks in all subject categories.

6. Faculty should know and consider costs of their
assigning books and identify book costs in syllabi.
Students could inform professors that violate this rule.

7. Faculty should list books early so that students can
investigate all purchasing options, and avoid ordering new
editions when they do not contain significant changes from
past editions.

8. Buy books on the international market.

9. Gamble by not buying the required books.

10. Use on-campus bookstores as a resource to gather price
information and ISBN codes for early buying, for shopping

11. Compare online bookstores, Amazon, Barnes and Noble,
eBay, Varsity Books, and

12. Search each vendor individually or use a comparison
shopping service such as Best Book Buys (lets you
compare the availability of books from up to 20 bookstores,
including shipping, handling, and taxes), or Big Words.

13. Meet students in your major through campus clubs
organizations and buy books through those acquaintances
and friends.

14. Many of the classics such as Shakespeare's plays, are
available or free online at sites like ProjectGutenberg, that has
thousands of free e-book titles available for downloading.

15. Consider buying an older, used edition of a particular

16. Some colleges have a book recycling bin outside their
bookstores, (suggest one).

17. Some colleges and alumni associations offer small
scholarships to help needy students with textbook costs.

18. Some textbook publishers offer online versions of
textbooks that students subscribe to for a semester or more
without having to buy a copy of the book.

19. Ask professors to use free, online, open-source
textbooks whenever academically appropriate. Online
textbooks-Pearson Education, which operates online as
SafariX Textbooks Online has online versions of some of its
titles. Several widely used economics textbooks are available
online at Aplia. Ask your professor if there is an online
version you need.

20. Check out the Student PIRGs- Public Interest Research
Groups: Exterior Link from
which many of these ideas came from.

21. Examples of some available open textbooks, which
generally are free, if used for noncommercial purposes, are
on this Website. External Link:
Copy and paste in search engine

22. Put the list of required texts in registration materials so
students would have time to shop.

23. Use a publishing house that offers books in the public
domain for $10 to $30s.

24.Free textbooks list

25. Lobby Congress to establish a grant
program for open textbook authors.

26. Promote open source, free source textbook with students
searching for such authors, (and giving professors lists.)

27. Provide your list of online free textbook sources which
others should add to.

28. There are 16,000+ U.S. school boards, duplicating the
work and decisions of each other (on buying, picking
book, and courses), could there be less and save billions
of your tax dollars?

29. Public, private schools, and different countries could
work together, hire authors, and publish identical textbooks,
by the millions, and cut costs by 90% or create open course
books that each country could modify to suit their own
preferences. Example: China, USA, India, Pakistan, and
Afghanistan all could use the same modified open course
textbooks, online or paper. (Make love, Not War!!)

Will professors build their own textbooks?-External Links

3. (You) Create a College Problem Solving Think Tank
How else can students do anything they do? Use Internet
Group Sourcing (Group Brainstorming) to solve, and provide
ideas for other ways to do anything you do. Can you get to
school a different, cheaper way? Buy food the same way small
groceries do for 1/4 the cost, in boxes, and divide it with other
students, (Many of these suppliers will sell to you, and
frequently deliver, as I have already checked). Have a buying
coop. Rent a house with others, and reduce your rent cost by
more than half, but protect yourself by planning how to deal
with problem people. Are there IT solutions to deal with
parents, or grandparents to help them solve their problems?
Can you convince the CEO of the company you want to work
for that you can already perform needed tasks with your
current education? Start your own company, hire someone
with the needed educational credentials and hire yourself.
List everything you and others do and want to do, and find a
better way!!! Idea Example: Are some citizens willing to let a
student live rent free, for work that does not take much time
so you have time to study? Some house bound people need
people to shop and do other tasks that do not take much time.
(You have to check to find out and some years the answer
will be yes, or no. You could put an add in the paper or ask
the paper to take your add free.) Going to college, including
summers could cut some of your cost by 25%.

Home schooling, home learning, home education, by tutors or
parents is legal in all 50 U. S. states, but not in all countries, and
it is regulated by laws. On average, the home schooled
outperformed public school peers by 30 to 37 percentile points
across all subjects, with almost no performance gap between
minorities and genders. On average, homeschooled children   
score eighty-one points higher than national averages on the
SAT scores, are better socialized and have more self confidence.
