Google's Schmidt Condemns British Education System

Google, having single-handedly fixed the school system here in the U.S., has turned its attention to those slackers across the pond. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Delivering the annual MacTaggart lecture in Edinburgh, Eric Schmidt criticised "a drift to the humanities" and attacked the emergence of two educational camps, each of which "denigrate the other. To use what I'm told is the local vernacular, you're either a luvvy or a boffin," he said. Schmidt also hit out at Lord Sugar, the Labour peer and star of the hit BBC programme The Apprentice, who recently claimed on the show that "engineers are no good at business". "Really?" Schmidt said. "I don't think we've done too badly."
