“People really are different in different places and have different educational needs. In Wichita they have an airplane manufacturing industry and no one to teach students how to work in it. In parts of the country there are hotels in the middle of nowhere that can’t find anyone nearby who might know how to manage one.
Education needs to be local at just the time when the country is trying to make it into one size fits all.” – Roger Schank
