Lamar's new program sets itself apart in convenience and cost: Students take one five-week course at a time and finish a dozen required courses in 18 months, shorter than many traditional master's programs designed for working teachers.
They take all their courses on a computer – watching videos of lectures and doing assignments – and pay just $4,950, less than half the price of most education master's degrees in Texas.
I don't care if it's a diploma mill. Degrees in education are next to useless anyway. The only reason to get one is to "move over" on the salary scale.
