In such a critical historical junction as this, much like with the rise of industrialization commanded a need for more education to prepare children for the workforce, the tech revolution demands a better educated public that can handle the software and service based skills of the future. Taking money out of public education and putting it in the pockets of a small few looking to legitimize the troubling "profit college" system is antithetical to our needs as a nation. We need a free college movement, in line with what Europe offers. And better pay for teachers, to attract the best talent. See how much Canada pays their teachers in even the poorest areas to know how much more they regard those responsible for the next generation than we do.
