Higher Ed

If Ford Motor Company did as bad a job in promoting its product as higher education does in promoting its product, not one Ford would have ever been sold.  It may be that parents are the fundamental problem in our education system but that failure is as much or more the failure of the educators to educate the parents than it is the fault of the parents who made little or no effort to determine education’s shortcomings.

  1. I feel many parents think of school as a baby sitting service. Add to this that here, in the Las Vegas area, a good number of parents are in low paying service jobs and assume their kids will be too.
    As for promoting higher education, educators don't have a clue, you need folks with private sector marketing experience, for example, those that promote Ford!
