Winning strategy?

Letter

Posted: Wednesday, September 04, 2002

It's called education? They lower the bar until the product passes inspection. It's a good thing for the rest of us that the same technique is not applied to airplanes, or cars, or bridges. Why is it that the public education industry refuses to raise the quality of its output? Is it because parents don't demand the same standards for their children's education that they expect for everything else they buy?

My point, as someone who invested 28 years in the salmon fishery, is that we did not lower our quality standards to sell fish, and I have to wonder why anyone would think that is a winning strategy for our children.
