You don’t need no education

13 October 2014

Panamanian Secretary of Labor, Luis Ernesto Carles, goes one step beyond the Mexican government’s educational “reforms” which would turn most public universities into mere technical schools (and the cause of so much unrest of late). Minister Carles suggests the universities stop offering degrees in fields for which there are no job openings.

This seems to be a theme here in Central America… with rising expectations, and growing disparity between the haves and have nots, better the have-nots don’t have any expectations beyond what the haves allow them.
