Funny guy. I loved what he is saying but it’s not news to me.  I love how parents always get a free pass.  Maybe the drop out problem is a parenting issue, not a school issue.  If parents had to be licensed and get “professional development” we wouldn’t have many of the issues.  Unfit parents have kids and it’s America’s problem to fix.  I hadn’t thought about the economic toll of our stupidity, and it was interesting to hear him talk about the problem from that perspective.  I hope some day that educators will have a voice in the process, but for that to really happen the whole system would have to change.  Then companies like “Goldman Sachs” (who sponsored some of these videos FYI) would have to let that happen, and we all know the share holders won’t like that a bit.
