Dear China: Online education is not just academic. Democracy advocate Wang Dan is taking political education to the internet. Although the site will likely be inaccessible from within China, Wu wants to provide Chinese ex-pats who study abroad a way to learn about democracy.

A prominent Chinese dissident has established a school on the Internet to educate young Chinese on democracy, hoping they may one day help institute political changes in China.

At an opening ceremony in Taipei on Saturday, Wang Dan said the “New School for Democracy” will invite leading political scientists to give lectures and engage in “preparatory work for China’s democracy.”
