Happy Tuesday! Yesterday Starbucks and ASU Online released their new partnership that will provide some tuition assistance to Starbucks partners (that is what they call their employee’s because they begin earning stock in the company when they work there). Here is the site that Starbucks released. It is important to note that Starbucks will not be footing the bill for everyone there are stipulations to the program. Yet, it looks great. More people will have the ability to receive assistance to obtain a college degree. Without knocking on for profit colleges it is also important to note that ASU Online is a for profit branch of Arizona State. It also charges students $580-$540 per credit. Here is a Chronicle of Higher Education article that points out some issues. What do you think? Does this deal provide more access to higher education?
