A quickie from David Warlick:
a quote from John Gage, vice president and chief researcher of Sun Microsystems’s Science Office. He said,
We’re in a knowledge economy, and we’ve known about that for years. But for some odd reason, we take it for granted. That’s fundamentally flawed.
Other countries see education as an investment, but we see it as a cost!
As with other thought-for-the-days, I don't really have anything to add to this - I just wanted to share so we could all think about this.
