politics vs productivity

Posted By: Allen Lambert on October 14, 2008
So Ayers et al promote education for politics rather than for productive work and an examined life. Just what “urban” children need to get out of a culture of poverty and unemployability.

I wonder, would Mr. Ayers' friend, Barack Obama, have attended Columbia and Harvard and be a presidential candidate today had his education emphasized politics rather than basic literacy skills and work ethic?
