The Astrological Institute, Inc. ("Teaching Comprehensive Astrology For Todays World!"), http://www.primenet.com/~astroin/, of Scottsdale, Arizona, has been accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology. This may not be a "distance education" school, but I thought that people who missed today's AP story would want to hear about this. ACCSCT accreditation must be incredibly worthless if they'll accredit this. Anyway, I find the end of the AP article especially amusing: "Scientists scoff at the pursuit. "Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist who heads the Hayden Planetarium in New York, noted astrology was discredited 600 years ago with the birth of modern science. 'To teach it as though you are contributing to the fundamental knowledge of an informed electorate is astonishing in this, the 21st century,' he said. "Education should be about knowing how to think, Tyson said. 'And part of knowing how to think is knowing how the laws of nature shape the world around us. Without that knowledge, without that capacity to think, you can easily become a victim of people who seek to take advantage of you.' "Jensen is familiar with such criticism. 'It's quite obvious that he hasn't studied the subject,' she said."
