Abbey Lynn Sutton: Needed knowledge

February 1, 2013 

Needed knowledge

By all means, let’s start in kindergarten and teach our youth only things for which someone will pay them. Obviously, only doctors and nurses need to know how a body works. Forget about all that drama and art. Those jobs are few and far between.

Why waste our time and money teaching a potential plumber anything that does not pertain to plumbing? Why would he need to know geography or history? He doesn’t need to know where Iran is or have any understanding of the world situation in order to fix the toilet.

Heaven forbid he should be given enough general knowledge to know not to vote for Gov. Pat McCrory.
