- Dec 22, 2013View SourceDes, I am also of the mind that education is the important factor, and one I'm sorry to say society is losing touch with. When I talk to high school teens who are debating college or other venues of career beginnings, I ask, "Do you want to be educated in breadth and depth, or do you want career training, or both?" Their answer determines how they might proceed.On Dec 22, 2013, at 8:26 AM, <deskilfeather@...> wrote:
It is a real shame that the world is loosing touch with the importance of "education" as opposed to training for a job. Education is for everybody in this world, a cultural right. As an oldie, in my day, employers trained their staff for the job and did not expect schools and universities to do that for them. With some exceptions such as accounting and the law. I hope that education for the sake of education regains its status in our world, we are much the poorer without it.
