From the Paper:"The need for a college degree has become evident in recent years for many professions. High schools are geared to prepare their students for college and students are being encouraged to think about post high school education as a given instead of an option. The workforce has become extremely competitive in the last few decades and often times what separates those who are hired from those who are not is a college degree. As the need for a degree becomes more important, people are trying to find ways to fit college into their already demanding lives. One of the things that has been invented for the purpose of allowing their pursuit is distance education. Distance education has enjoyed increasing attention for the last few years. It allows those who want to obtain a degree, but cannot attend classes, to fulfill their desire. Through the use of distance education millions of students across the nation are now working toward various leveled degrees and improving their earning power."
