Suggested reading: Disrupting Class by Clayton Christensen (Harvard Professor). It's a book about online education. He estimates that half of all high school courses in the United States will be consumed over the Internet by 2019.
Nearly 80,000 kids (K-12) take classes in the state-sponsored Florida Virtual School.

Reed College is an undergraduate institution not a full scale university, like Harvard U (apples v. watermelons comparison).
Unigo was ranking academic rigor and toughness not anything else. Harvard ranking number 6 surprised me too. What do you think, it should be 11th or 12th? Less would be too harsh. Ivy Leaguers not knowing about Reed is more a statement about the Ivy League than Podunk Reed College.
