Yet another round spent in the accountability barrage, this one from Florida Governor Rick Scott:
“If I’m going to take money from a citizen to put into education, then I’m going to take that money to create jobs,” Mr. Scott told the paper. “So I want that money to go to degrees where people can get jobs in this state. Is it a vital interest of the state to have more anthropologists? I don’t think so.”
Humanists better get their act together. If we don’t give a convincing account of the value of our work, it simply won’t be valued.
