Getting a life

13th February 2009 at 00:00

I came across the following quotation recently which should be on the desks of all policymakers: "An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life." The quotation is anonymous; I wish I'd said it.
