First time I saw this, it was illuminating on the issue of education as well as delivered in a funny manner by a Brit with wit.

 

Hope you enjoy it and I hope that those with closed minds may open them a smidgen, to pull a Briticism?

That's very good information to share, Pubby!

 

People need an education that is not taught in school just as much, or more, than they need a formal school education from college.

 

Like Mr. Robinson says, these formal educations are becoming of no value.

 

Here's what I think people would benefit from. Dick Proenneke, at age 51, lived in Alaska, by himself, for 30 years.

"The rich alone use imported articles, and on these alone the whole taxes of the General Government are levied. ... Our revenues liberated by the discharge of the public debt, and its surplus applied to canals, roads, schools, etc., the farmer will see his government supported, his children educated, and the face of his country made a paradise by the contributions of the rich alone, without his being called on to spend a cent from his earnings." ~ The Chief Author of our Declaration of Independence
