Feed Your Head
How much does education cost?
When I moved to Madison to attend graduate school in 1984 most of what I knew about music, other than classical, was whatever top 40 popular songs were playing at the time.
That changed when I discovered WORT. Graduate school cost me $1000 a semester; my WORT education cost me $40, twice a year.
University, college, and technical school costs have exploded, but WORT has remained a bargain.
WORT music “professors” hold classes in over 30 genres/sub-genres of music. Our talk professors bring in guests who discuss their new books, their compelling research, their direct experience with government law and policy.
With over 50 news professors, we are able to bring you stories from more than the usual talking heads. Stories from those affected by law and policy, not just those creating or pontificating about them.
Who makes this possible? Your annual tuition, not set by WORT, but set by YOU. You decide the value you receive from WORT, you decide what amount you can afford.
Leaving you to set the value of what you receive from WORT is inconceivable under capitalist principles, and yet it works.
Thank you for helping to do the impossible, together. Thank you for your generous support!
