Submission Steve Jobs vs. Texas Teachers Unions

John writes: In an appearance at an Austin, Texas summit on public education, Steve Jobs said that teachers unions are detrimental to public schools. He further argued that schools should be run more like businesses and that technology alone couldn't improve education, according to an AP story.

"What kind of person could you get to run a small business if you told them that when they came in they couldn't get rid of people that they thought weren't any good?", Jobs added.

There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom. -- Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923
