I somewhat agree with John until he got to the part about the Utah lawmakers. I
feel that businessmen and parents don’t necessarily have the same goals
for children. The goal of good public schools requires that we have
government that represents the people. To have government that represents the
people, we must get business out of government and religion out of both. The proper purpose of public education would be the teaching children
how to learn, analyze, test and evaluate their world. Not to indoctrinate, not
to mold to their minds to a particular point of view and most certainly not to
train them for a particular occupation. Given the proper tools of
learning, educated people can enter any field, any occupation, and any
philosophy. And not be hampered by the chains of prejudice, false notions and
useless facts. The only thing a college degree gets you, is get
you in the door.

Japan is; IT. In the movies. "IT", makes it or brakes it. Substance.
