PostRittenhouse's Online Studies (Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA, 11/25/21 4:25 am)
Re Rittenhouse's online studies: There are now thousands of Americans holding online graduate and undergraduate degrees. I will not challenge their validity or quality, but as a traditionalist I value more personal class attendance and teaching.
After working on a Juris Doctor at UC Berkeley and Masters and PhD Degrees at University of Michigan, I appreciate the difference of being able to "press the flesh."
JE comments: We're on the same page here, Francisco. Online education is not my cup of tea, although I will acknowledge that you can learn anything on YouTube. Just yesterday I figured out how to purge and reset a computer, without calling in the specialists. Another pedagogical triumph for the 'Tube. Otherwise here in Delaware, I would have had to go to Hunter Biden's computer guy.
The skinny on Rittenhouse's studies: He enrolled just last month in a non-degree program through Arizona State. The University is careful to point out that Rittenhouse has neither applied nor been admitted as a regular student. Given the timing, I suspect he became a "student" on his lawyer's advice, to make him seem like a wholesome, normal kid.
