At my son's graduation for the local government high school, all of the speakers were politicians--the mayor and our national congressional representative. It struck me even then, why no businessmen? I know of several members in our community who work in businesses doing world-changing work. My first reaction was pretty cynical--well of course a government school promotes politicians. But after seeing the clip below, I thought about how the bias goes further than public school. I know of no private school that teaches entrepreneurship either.
Entrepreneurs and businessmen are wealth creators. Without the middlemen to bring the bacon to market--we'd have to all live on a farm. They deserve our admiration, and our nurturing when young.
Caveat: Just because I post something doesn't mean that I endorse every single thing within it--whether an article or a video clip.
