State plans mostly ignored research on what works and what does not to achieve particular outcomes.

I agree with Dr. Chuck-Coursera's paywall sucks-but I realize they have to finally make some money..I've taken a number of Dr. Chuck's courses and  Colleen Van Lent's and they're very good..if you have a bit of computing experience...but even if you don't, they have very helpful TA's and students in their courses.
