Museum Rules

Friday, October 08, 2010

Merryl Tisch, chancellor of the New York Board of Regents, talks about the Board of Regents' decision to allow the ban on "deaccessioning" (selling or trading pieces in a collection) to expire today, in order to help museums to cover their operating expenses, plus New York's for-profit colleges.

Let's make it a sweep.

Are you reading PRODUCERS?

I am hitting EVERY single topic from my blog here today...
hint hint.

With regard to FOR profit colleges:

We need a new system for job training and teaching in our country.

The answer of college is no longer the only or best answer for most people today...

I claim that we need a new version of the
Depression (1) era WPA-- Work projects administration..

It would be a teaching experience
It would allow kids (+17) to experience different career choices
It would NOT rule out those who wanted to go to college.
It would be (gasp...gasp..) mandatory for 3 yrs for those over 17, or HS graduates.

It would re-invigorate the country (formal job training, formal public works projects, etc)

Go see my top ten list:

...and much of this is not new, but over 3-5 years old.
