Education's Ethanol

ethanol2.jpgThere was a guy on last night's PBS News Hour (President Urges Ethanol Cars) making the case that, when it comes down to it, ethanol is a mighty weak strategy for energy conservation -- -- a highly subsidized, but ultimately too weak a solution for the underlying problem.

This made me wonder, what's education's version of ethanol -- propped up by government or private subsidies but ultimately too small or weak to get the real job done? I'm guessing lots of ideas and programs come to mind.
