Hey, they might not be able to read or write, and they CERTAINLY won't have a clue as to what "critical thinking" is, but they'll be able to buy groceries downtown with their food stamps, and Hanger One will shine on, and billions of dollars will go into a high-speed rail system that they'll never use.
It's a good thing that DoD and CIA seeded so much venture capital into this Valley, because long-term thinking just isn't in the Silicon Valley skill set AT ALL.

/ Brown is doing what he has to do to "ensure we don't have further cuts to education." /
I don't understand that. Cutting school funding now to avoid cuts later...? Does anyone know the economics behind that?
If we taxed the wealthiest Californians (who are most able to pay) I am certain that there would be enough money to fund public education (which is a long-term investment for everyone who lives in our state). Shame that our governor lacks the backbone to stand up to the corporate interests of the most elite class of Californians.

Remember when they just spent millions of dollars to "pretty" the intersection of Stanford Ave and El Camino. Yeah, me too. It doesn't look or act much different. Where in the world are our priorities?'
