Ray Kinsella, the cornfield, and farts in the breeze

Ray Kinsella didn’t just sit on the porch of his Iowa farmhouse shouting at that damn failing cornfield and demanding it start spitting out baseball legends. Our policy makers are failing in their responsibility to “build it”, choosing instead to scapegoat, allow education to be guided by a market-mentality and non-educators. 

“Jobs of tomorrow” is like a fart in the breeze. Smells bad the very first moment, then the farter can shrug and say “woopsie” as it disappears. When does economic and policy reform, sustaining real jobs, and public ed become more important than state of the art nuclear war machines, monitoring and controlling the population?
