Cool: Five University of Georgia professors have started a program dubbed  Freedom University to teach seminar courses to undocumented immigrants shut out of the state's top schools because of a new policy that bans them - despite a study finding that the out-of-state tuition they paid exceeds the cost of educating them, and who can ever argue with education? Except, it seems, in these rabid times.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
