Among national sputter over budget cuts to higher-education programs, Michele Bachmann says the Internet is the answer. “There’s no question that higher education has outstripped costs,” she said. “So I’m really looking forward to exploring new ways of delivering higher education.”
Increasing online education, which she called “relatively free and accessible to almost any student,” is the way to compensate for a loss of funding, she said.
Bachmann, who in 2008 called for a new McCarthyism, is a highly divisive figure considering running for president next year.
