Stuck in the middle of a fairly mundane article about older workers going back to school for additional training when their jobs are phased out or outsourced came this very interesting quote in the Gallatin News Examiner regarding what training these older workers are choosing, According to Sumner ounty Director of Schools Benny Bills:
Education is a very popular choice because of its stability, he added, since people don’t have to worry about a company being bought out or a job being outsourced.
And so there you have it. I'm one who thinks that a bit of instability in the education system via some legitimate competition and accountability is necessary in order to encourage it to be excellent. There is a reason the phrase 'good enough for government work' is used.
