This is an article rich with irony in the way only the Chronicle can be. While admitting half way through the story that some readers "accused The Chronicle of an 'editorial slant against online ed.'" they still manage to finish this supposed 'discussion' of online learning with that old cudgel, "You are going in for major heart surgery. How many of you want the cardiologist to have gotten his/her degrees from excellent online education program?" (For those actually convinced by that line of reasoning, may I offer: you're a passenger in an airliner. How many of you would want a pilot who studied in a flight simulator?" Right, and the rest of you can contemplate how pilots can practise landing in the Hudson in real life.
