Oh how naive you Europeans are. Don't you know education is all about teaching people how to make money? I hope the sarcasm is obvious. This is one of my pet peeves about American educational philosophy: it's all about preparing people for a career. It is nothing to do with creating better people.

And yes, we have libraries.
