[This is the transcript of my regular KVMR commentary broadcast on 31 May 2013. This and previous commentaries are also available on the KVMR website.]
Information systems professor Larry Press of CalState Dominguez Hills recently asked the question ‘Are poor students excluded from online education?’ In this commentary and on my blog the larger issue of wealth and income inequality has been extensively debated, and continues to be a hot button topic between the Left and the Right. The Left insists that the problem is correctible through the proper adoption of new and improved social justice policies. The Right doesn’t agree and offers to lift all fortunes through smaller government, less regulation, and lower taxes. But it claims no solution to the inequality problem.
