A market-based solution to the higher education mess (that circumvents politicians)

The program (started by a libertarian young man named Isaac Morehouse), touts an average starting salary at a real job of $50K annually and a 98% placement rate all after 9 months in the program.

Morehouse recently appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News to discuss the program:

At a time when the New Mexico Legislature seems hell-bent on making life more difficult for businesses and entrepreneurs, Praxis is a reminder that sometimes the best way to deal with bloated, expensive, and inefficient government is to just go around them.
