||Why isn't your school
accredited? Is it because you are so far below grade
that no one will accredit you?
||First, we are not
accredited because we choose not to be. Accreditation—when
it is something more than a marketing gimmick—places
a load of requirements on the school that we could not
||How can you in good
conscience use commercial advertising on an education
||We are quite aware of the
noble position that learning should not be tainted with
ungodly commercialization. But we would rather use our
limited resources building more and better learning
opportunities that running about doing dog-and-pony
shows for potential donors.
||Why do you clutter your
pages with so many ads?
||Huh? Most pages have only
two banner ads, one of the left side of the page and one
at the bottom. Some older pages also have a third ad on
the right side of the page, but we are phasing them out
because of mobile issues. Furthermore, we never place
ads at the top of the page nor interrupt the flow of
information through the middle section.
||What good is taking your
courses if we don't get a diploma?
||Taking diploma-free courses
at Free-Ed.Net does a whole lot of good by developing
abilities to catch a vision, plan, execute, struggle and
win. When someone can develop this kind of character, a
diploma is irrelevant. It is a terrible mistake to think
a diploma entitles a person to anything that approaches
the value of learning to learn. (Just note the huge
numbers of unemployed who thought their diplomas were
passports to economic security).
||Don't you ever bother to proofread
your pages? I found a page with three typos and
misspelled words. This is supposed to be an education
||We are aware that there are numerous
errors of the kind you cite here. But our resources are
limited and the opportunities for gathering, organizing,
and presenting truly meaningful learning resources are
growing every day. It's a matter of priorities, and,
regrettably, we have to make choices in this regard. If
you wish to help make Free-Ed.Net look "better
educated," I suggest you put away your Grammar Police
badge and send us corrections for the errors you find.
||Everything free? Bull***. Every
place I click takes me to a place that asks for money.
You are a rip-off artist!
||I am sorry to learn of your difficulty:
Most Web newbees have trouble distinguishing ads from
serious on-site links. Advertising on Free-Ed.Net is
found only along the side and bottom of the page. It's
tragic that there are people whose intellect is
challenged by such a difficult concept.
||I tried one of your so-called "short
courses" and was directed to an online book that had
90 percent of the blocked off. What good is that?
||If you look carefully, the title of the
course lines up with the one or two chapters of the
online book that are not blocked. My empathy rises up
for today's employers who are so desperately seeking
people who can actually succeed with the resources at
hand. One look at the hundreds of cut-and-paste job
applications, and you are seeing hundreds of lazy
whiners who have no imagination and put far more effort
into creative bitching than productive work.
