politics vs productivity

|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?
