My bit for the Future — Shop Class as Soulcraft

More educators and parents, and economists and politicians, and constituents, need to read this article:

In a nutshell, after a quick scan: Skilled trades are valuable to the doer and to the economy. They exercise your brain in ways most schoolwork doesn’t. This leads to better brains all around. They give you a feeling of accomplishment. They lead to better designers and better designs. They keep work in the country — make it here, make it good, repair it, rather than replace it with a mass-produced unit from China.

I agree with all of it.
