There are three serious problems facing education today. These include working with draconian budgets that mean reduced spending for education, making education interesting and relevant for students, and raising standards. Several issues that the legislators are especially concerned about are the low retention rates at the college level, the high dropout rates in the high schools, and the long time it takes undergraduate students to graduate college. The authors show how online learning may be an important tool for solving these problems.
