Business Education Canada?
Q: I don't know about you, but outside of business, I don't look at
things like people's job histories or where they went to school when I
evaluate people; generally, I'm more interested in learning about
them and learning new things myself.
In business, however, I consider these sorts of things very important.
I frequently hire people on the basis of their educational background,
even to the detrement of my personal preconceptions about race, sex,
country of origin, etc.
So how do you get companies to pay for the education that they are
demanding instead of making society pay for what business is
I propose that business should be responsible for paying for the
education that they demand, and not make society pay a penny. I don't

In a branch plant economy training is often centralized in the US
A: This is one often stated reason for the low R&D and employee education expenditure in Canada. Some very successful companies in this country do train their employees. And many do spend money keeping their employees up to date. So, I should be owned by the business I wish to work for, who'll send me to university? Here in Ontoryo where the Reform Retards Rule, business already pays for the education portfolio. One of the idiot Harris' great Reform Ideas...or have you been too busy gazing at your navel to notice? Nice thesis though...for a 15 year old. It seems to me that through out the history of humanity Parents taught their children. I guess today's parents don't care as much. For me personally I just want to get an opportunity to teach my grandchildren what I have learned.
