Greenspan: Stop Cutting Taxes and Fund Education

Well, actually, he didn’t say anything about how to pay for more education. But if it’s worth doing, it’s worth spending money borrowed from our children to do (because we know funding anything with taxes is evil):

Congress needs to promote both the teaching of basics such as arithmetic, geometry and calculus, Mr. Greenspan said, as well as the abstract reasoning that workers will need to survive in a highly competitive job market.

“Our school systems should be judged on the basis by which they produce a generic learning that enables people to be in several professions or jobs through their life work,” he said. “It’s so critical that we teach people how to learn.”

Silly Greenspan. We’re all Intelligently Designed. So whatever we know and to whatever extent we can reason, it’s all for the best and according to plan.
