Just want to make sure I have this straight.
This was in the paper today:
If Connecticut wants to create more jobs and improve the economy, Democratic lawmakers say, it needs to focus on innovation and entrepreneurship, decide what investments to make, and educate a workforce for in-demand jobs. (Hartford Courant, 2/3/10)
And this was in the paper yesterday:
The state’s technical high schools are plagued by leaking roofs, serviced by broken-down buses and are so cash-strapped that some have run out of basic supplies such as wire in the electrical shop, legislators and education leaders said during a legislative hearing Monday. (Hartford Courant, 2/2/10)
So they want to educate a workforce for in-demand jobs, but the technical high schools are going to hell? Do I have that right?
As I’ve noted before, I come from three generations of plumbers. I wasn’t smart and talented enough to be one, so I do this. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
So is there any chance we can get the people from Story A to talk to the people in Story B?
It shouldn’t be that hard. They work under the same roof. And sooner or later, they’re all gonna need a plumber.
