Here are just a few interesting links on the future of education. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    In Australia students don't pay any tuition up front. A slice of any wage they earn in Australia after they graduate is garnished until their total tuition bill is paid.

    On the positive side it means university isn't just for the wealthy or well-off.
    On the negative side, until the 1980s university was 100% free....
