The Churchill Option

Saw this a couple of places:
Former faculty at Antioch College, which is temporarily closing amid financial problems, plan to teach in coffee shops, bookstores and parks to keep alive the spirit of the private school known for its pioneering academic programs. . . .

While the institute has Antioch's goals, it doesn't have its stamp of approval.

Toni Murdock, chancellor of Antioch University, which oversees the college, said Thursday that the university has sent letters to students and their parents, telling them that the institute is not sanctioned by Antioch.

Murdock said she applauds the group's passion, but the institute is not accredited. She fears some students might wrongly assume that courses taken at the institute could be applied toward graduation at other schools.
