A 4-year college degree for $10,000?

AUSTIN, Texas  (USANN4)–Can you imagine getting a college degree for only $10,000?   If Texas Governor Rick Perry has his way, it could eventually be a reality.   The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Perry is calling for the state’s schools to develop a four-year baccalaureate degree that costs no more than 10 grand.

Texas’ commissioner of higher education says the plan is doable.   Several plans for a stripped-down degree include statewide online courses, more opportunities for students to spend their first two years in community colleges, and accelerated and self-paced course formats.   Some skeptics question whether the plan is possible or even desirable.
