Jail The Teachers?

         "If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen...There was a great teacher somewhere in your life....government built the roads and bridges..." and so on.
        But if you're not responsible for your success, if it was do to 'a great teacher somewhere' or some government something-or-other, then who's responsible for the kids who didn't turn out so well? If you robbed a business instead of starting one, who should go to jail? (Anyone remember the name of little Bernie Madoff's first grade teacher? Where she lives? What size handcuffs she wears?)
       If you're ambitious enough and hard working enough (and, yeah, smart enough) to follow your passion and get it right, then of course you're the one who made it happen, who built it. Don't listen to anyone who tries to take it away from you.

        The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was painted by Michaelangelo, not the carpenters who built the scaffolding he was lying on.
