Shortly before he died in 2011, Steve Jobs famously told President Obama that Apple would have located 200,000 iPhone manufacturing jobs in the United States, rather than China, if he could have found 8,700 qualified industrial engineers in the U.S. This exchange and others like it led to a widespread belief that American technology education was in crisis and that the U.S. was hemorrhaging jobs because our students couldn't or wouldn't do the hard math.

It is not my intention to belabor a subject I have already addressed in a previous letter. That being, that I personally am opposed to the two November referendums that would allow the Kershaw County school board to borrow $130 million via bonds, and for the imposition of an additional "penny" sales and or use tax to finance it. Rather, I just want to present the subject from a different perspective, that may simplify or clarify it, or at least bring it a little closer to home and see how it might affect individuals.
