Why in the world did I move to Florida? It’s a regressive State.
Our primitively minded Governor has now declared war on liberal arts education.
He believes that the only college or university degrees which should be supported by the taxpayer’s monies are those which lead to jobs or to entrepreneurship.
This small minded man has no appreciation of the quality of life. He needs to understand that the good life is not all about jobs.
Essential to that good life is art, music, theatre, poetry, literature, philosophy, historical awareness, dance, and environmental concern (to name but a few of the “essentials”).
I am all in favour of jobs and of entrepreneurship. But God save us from Governor Rick “Tiny Mind” Scott who seems to think that the sole purpose of education is to produce drones.
There are many good reasons why I moved to Florida. I like my adopted State.
But I refuse to accept the Scott doctrine which equates education with vocation.
