Education and big business

 

Sir, – Could we please move away from the notion that the purpose of education is to satisfy the needs of corporations? If we focus on assisting students to reach the peak of their abilities in those subjects where they show their greatest capacities, we will also produce a society best able to respond to the ever-changing world in which we live. – Yours, etc,

PATRICK DAVEY,
