Skills Training Dysfunctional

Unattributed, BBC News, Nov 21, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

After all, aren't they the ones who demanded something like the current "'alphabet soup' of skills quangos?" Business and industry have demonstrated over the years that they are mostly interested in the short-term and that they have no acuity for the development of public policy, including education policy. So why put them in charge of it?
