    I'm in the Healthcare industry, subsection DEATH.

    Then it seems to me that education, as an industry, is failing. Should we care?

    It's not like the porn industry... few would care if that failed - as long as the reason it fails is reasonable laws as to how We, The People are allowed to make personal choices in life and not some black coated gestapo shutting it down for anybody's paranoid parents.

    Is anyone in the leadership industry finally talking about promoting the education industry?!?

    Sounds almost as important as the banking industry to me!

    P.S. - The top line is true. I work in a cemetary. Actually, a big corporation owns it, but they pay me fairly for what I do. The industry is still heavily regulated from its bitch-slap for greed in the 70's & 80'S. The paperwork sucks but it's a living.

    i said leadership because i was a great Boss and taught all of my employees all that i knew, never afraid of them one day taking my place or job away.....this produced at least 15 of my own employees to become managers or supervisors or even directors such as myself, for the company in other areas of the business...

    this was not teaching young kids, but some of them were kids to me, in their early twenties.

    Geeze, I'm retired. I guess I'm one of the "old white haired people," I guess I fall under the "useless" column.

    I have been a man of many hats..but for me my latest employ is the most surreal of all i monitor CCTV screens and operate all doors and man traps at a banking warehouse... just like a high security prison without any prisoners I'm locked down in a bullet proof control room for 9 hrs ...its always kind of weird when a huge load of money comes in millions at a time ..there is always a tension and quasi-military feel in the air..and when you see this enormous pile of cash I swear the karmic energy is like Satan himself is present...the dark lord has arrived...

    Doesn't mean you don't still 'do' something, does it?

    None of the above. I don't make car parts, I don't make parts for xray machines, nor do I make parts for the chairs upon which fat ass bureaucrats sit their more or less useless butts I was however once a school teacher. I am a machinist making parts for the chemical industry and others who need to measure fluid levels in various containers many of which aren't see through.

    One thing we do need to do however is to get the federal government out of education to the greatest extent possible. All The department of education has done thus far in its brief existence is provide another level of bureaucracy to siphon money away from local schools.
