    business leaders attempting setting educational requirements.   They like to tell us how we're not educating skills to their needs, but even if the system tried, it wouldn't help - the skills needed change constantly.  

    At the same time, there's been a lot of educational theorists who manage to foist off their pet theories on the educational system, whether their theory works in the real world or not.  

    Looking back over my own life, what I've found were necessary skills were:  The ability to read; the ability to write; math; and the ability to reason.  If you have those skills, everything else follows.  

    I think that I have had enough of you telling me how things will be. Today I choose a new way to go ... and it goes through you!
