Education vs Job Training

 "To get a good job, get a good education."

I remember this slogan from the sixties: It was the mantra under which the American school system changed its function from education to job training.  

Those chickens are now coming home to roost.

The article Why does France insist school pupils master philosophy?  was brought to our attention by emptyset.  
It is from the BBC News and describes one alternative to American practice.
