Sadly, this issue will probably wash over into traditional higher education. I believe that in 10-20 years we will have state-level or federal-level (or both) certification of academic programs at all post-secondary institutions. I think certification of faculty will be part of that possible future. These efforts are well-intentioned but are also driven by a form of dangerous consumerism that tries to make education into a product like a hamburger or a form of infotainment.
