It is an interesting contrast, seeing how America views the trades vs. Australia. The respect for trades here is probably largely due to one of the 2 major parties being the Labor Party, having its roots in the union movement. That and the relative success of the unions so that tradies can earn a really good living. As a comedian said, "I want my children to have jobs with status - something in Hi-Viz."

The converse side is that the other major party gets in power and then cuts funding for trade schools. That and unions having too much influence over areas of policy where they don't belong. My Labor Premier gave paid firefighters power over the large, strong, capable, volunteer firefighting force. We depend on the volunteers in rural areas and lost a lot because of this, not to mention it is expensive. Too few people and too many trees to do it without volunteers.

A Thousand Rivers — Carol Black - What the modern world has forgotten about children and learning
 
"One day I watched a nine-year-old boy as he led a group of children scrambling over Vasquez Rocks, a great sandstone formation that slants up out of the California desert. He was one of those magnetic, electrical, radiant boys; kind to the younger ones, strong, quick, inquisitive, sharp as a tack, his eyes throwing sparks in the clear air. It was a joy just to watch him, I said to the friend standing beside me. She told me he had just been diagnosed with ADHD."

I sent this article to my kids in case they have children someday, but neither seems willing to take the chance.

Six good essays on education.

great article/idea

i think this is relative and could be genius...

(i posted something way back about scott mcnealy of sun microsystems fame speaking to this)

Books too boring? Maybe they need badges and achievements.

If old-fashioned books are too boring for you, ebook distributor OverDrive wants to gamify them with interactive elements and video game-inspired achievements and badges for kids who finish their reading homework.

As for the K-12 system...ever school in my neighborhood has a turf field, high tech track, nightlights...

education and healthcare are ripe for disruption

the best the bureaucrats can hope for is a "slow unwinding"
