Online Enrollment Rises With Gas Prices - President: Enrollment Up 23 Percent - WFSB, Connecticut

Student, mother and day care director Arline Linger said signing up for online classes through Charter Oak State College is the smartest choice she’s ever made. She said she’s able to take classes whenever she wants, even after work. “It's a lot more economical to do my online courses than to drive a great distance from Colchester to New Britain,” she said.

Thanks for posting the story Ray.

I have written to Connecticut's Office of Policy and Management to draw their attention to how distance education helps mitigate the permanent transportation cost increases that have arrived.
