“California lawmakers detailed a plan Wednesday to require the state’s 145 public colleges and universities to grant credit for low-cost online courses offered by outside groups, including classes offered by for-profit companies”.

I personally applaud this decision because there are so many students stuck in the public school system who cannot graduate because of one class or so.
This is an opportunity to get all public and private institutions to truly work together in a manner that is in the best interests of students.
I just hop politics and egos do not get in the way.
