Public Schools Training Students for the Past

    Aren’t American schools pumping out far too few Master Machinists to cover demand?

    What’s the path from “apprentice” Machinist to “Master” nowadays, anyway? Do companies spend money to train for that?

      Behold: you’re more likely to have a catastrophe from a lawsuit over hurt feelings than any sort of physical accident. :V

        I guess it’s easier for managers to throw up their hands and say, “We just can’t find good people”, than to actually invest in them. There’s less penalty for that than for allowing a “hostile work environment”, whatever that means.

    The purpose of the public schools is not to educate children, it is to pay teachers, provide medical insurance and retirement income. Students come last.

      You forgot the very important additional purpose of schools is to allow jobs where dues are collected and then contributed by leadership to union and associated political (almost all to one party) causes. The education of the child, beyond indoctrinaiton for politcal purposes is an afterthought. Why else is pointing fingers like a gun such an offense for little kids.
