An Education that Is Made in the U.S.A.

Barry Lenson

Made in the U.S.A.Do you like to buy products that are made in America? We do too. And so does the ABC World News with Diane Sawyer. If you visit the ABC World News website, you will discover that Ms. Sawyer and her team have been promoting American products and companies for some time now. Here’s some of the content you will find . . .

  • Videos about products that are made in the U.S.A.
  • Slideshows of American workers on their jobs
  • Articles about American workers, products, and companies
  • Quizzes that test your knowledge about whether the products you buy are American-made, or not

One feature you will not find on the website is a list of American-made educational institutions. That’s too bad, because there are many of them. Plus, an awful lot of them show the unmistakable imprint of American genius and vision.

  • The University of Virginia, for example, is American down to its very roots. It was founded and designed by Thomas Jefferson. If that’s not American, we don’t know what is.
  • The University of Pennsylvania is about as American as you can get too. It was founded by Benjamin Franklin, and statues of him can be seen around the campus.

StraighterLine’s “Made in America” credentials are not a lot different from those of the two venerable universities mentioned just above. They were both started by founding fathers who were among America’s most successful early citizens. StraighterLine was founded by a modern American entrepreneur. Courses are created and developed in America, using American ingenuity, American professors, and American technology. So if you like to support America by buying American, you can do so by studying at StraighterLine.

It’s a way of “buying American” that is open to all ambitious students, no matter where they live in the world.
