I have been noseying around, looking for a constructive way to spend some loot. I thought I’d look at some distance learning courses. Like this one. But oh, my, how can a girl bring herself to blow so much wad (Â£580) in one go?
The price of education appals me, it really does. Learning opportunities should be free for all who want them.
I don’t particularly want the credit points. I don’t want to make an income from my newly acquired learning. I just want to participate, to learn, and most of all – to stretch myself. It’s what I do. It’s what I love. It distresses me that it’s priced beyond my reach these days. How I long for the days when I could get a whole year of Open University education for just Â£2.00!
